dalaw is an unknown quantity at this point
Re: Amber looks pretty..

leave it chrome, if you black it out the circle parking light, it will appear very dim from the side. the chrome part actually magnifies the light output in certain angles especially on mine with the LED bulb.

Re: Amber looks pretty..

leave them chrome... you have to think about the future. Do you play on getting sidemarkers? If you do and they're amber... then leaving it chrome would look much better... I also think it loooks cheap when painting it all black.

Another pic for reference...

Re: Amber looks pretty..

I say chrome, but let me warn you be very very careful when you mask of the chrome it takes only the slightest amount of adhesive to peal of the chrome paint.
If I were you I would by the cheapest crappiest masking tape there is because it will be less sticky.
I used 3M BLUE big mistake!

Re: Amber looks pretty..

There's a trick to doing that. You get the tape and put it and on your shirt and peel it off. Do it about 3-4 times and then put it on the item you wanna tape off. It won't rip anythin off after

Re: Amber looks pretty..

I have the same problem myself on a black car... don't know if i should remove the amber or leave it or paint the circle light either...
