Nice job. Personally I don't like tinted brake light lenses. Makes it very hard to see on a sunny day. I hope nobody rear ends your truck because of it.Darrcoma said:Drop black auto paint 8 teaspoons per one pint of clear.
I paint the outside...there is an automotive clear coat on. So far i have had them on my truck for about 15 months now. No fading, scratches or chips have occured. Here is a pic of the breaklights applied. click meJamier2 said:Did you paint the insides or the outsides of the lenses? I've seen some write-ups on using spray on window tint on the insides of the lenses to avoid scratching later on.
How well do the brakes shine through? How about the parking lights?
Nice mod Darcoma.EnolaGaia said:Federal DOT requirements state that taillights must reflect red when light is shown on them. Notice the pics above are in shadow. If you follow Darrcoma's link to his Webshots page (and back up to his taillights gallery) you'll see a shot illustrating how these tinted ones do reflect as 'red' under light...
Yours is prolly better, but the Nite Shades works pretty well, IMO. And you need to powder coat your wheels black (or get some black wheels), and ditch those chrome tube steps. That would looke sharp.Darrcoma said:iv'e tried that stuff, IMO its junk compared to my method.
