I would like the DIY on what paint you used and if any sanding or treatment needed to be done. Thanks

acidbaby will become famous soon enoughacidbaby will become famous soon enough
dude you did them too dark now if you get rearended during the day. they can blame it on you because your tails are modded.......
when i did mine i left a smalll stripe (with electrical tape) on the top section to let the light throutgh during the day. and i also left the rereverse lights un moddedso it looks OEM and they cant tell the diff... i posted it up in the DIY smoked tails thread... also i have mine reversed too did it a while ago i hate the dohnut. now they act as huge turn siginals now:P

why did you do another DIY thread on this isnt there like 3 already?

LED's are directional. if you put them into the tails the light output is less than b4 but the color is better and cleaner.. i tried it and it didnt work too well.

I got em in my smoked tyc. Looks clean and bright during the day but your right in the "horseshoe" style tails the reflector would mess things up. But I have seen an LED bulb. Just LED's mounted w/ a bulb around it, i'm actually thinking about buying them but don't know how it would look...................

as for bulbs I think Hyper whites might be good enough. My buddy has them in his smoked tails and they light up pretty nice.

thats harsh, i've had mine for a month or so here in South Jersey and not a cop cares 1 bit. I've also have had 5% tint on all windows for over a year and they don't care either. I guess i'm in a lucky area.

London's not as bad as Toronto.... you guys really get the shaft there. I drove around with no front plate on my car in Toronto for 1 day and got pulled over. When I was here in London I drove around for 4 months and nothing happend.

Cops are way more leaniant towards modded cars here.
