ive seen tinted tail light and the night shades stuff, but has anyone painted them to match? I was thinking about painting them black except for the two circles and the reverse light.

You do this first and if it looks good I will do the same:ss-smiley:

The vinyl would prolly be the best to just test to see if its what you want. I've thought about doing something like that with the vinyl.

I'd first try to see if you have a sign shop around. If not, I'd go online for some good quality stuff. I'll go up to the sign shop here and see if they can do something real fast for me to see how it would look. The shop here did both our TBSS's emblem inlays.

We have a new member that can do stuff like this maybe we need to ask CraigW vbmenu_register("postmenu_2413", true); I'm pretty sure he makes custom graphics.

Funny I had the same Idea about that. At first thought vinyl would be cheaper but the way the tail lights are there are quite a few compound curves that do no lend to putting vinyl on especialy around the edges. So I would personally mask off and paint them. They are small and shouldnt cost a lot to paint. May be I will do mine and then see how they look.

Thanks Craig....glad you chimed in.

Thats the only thing that I was concerned about (but not really). They guy here said it would be no problem, but now I wonder since you said something. I guess I'll see how ballsdeep pans out, then I'll go from there. Trying to stay away from the whole "paint" deal, but I guess if I was to see some painted and really liked it, I'd go for it.
