did you only do the corner part of the tail light? make sure you clear coat too. clear coat will keep it shining and prevent it from fading during a nice winter.

your local parts store should have clear coat. thinking bout doing mine red then doing black do give it a nice dark red. gonna try it on a old civic tail light just to get an idea if it will work

Doesn't look right to me. I think you should do the whole tail light or nothing at all. It's a bit dark too.

I was going to hit the entire light but once you go over the reverse lights the cops are just waiting to pull your ass over so I decided against it. I have to take some with a real camera and not my phone and put them up.

I do not fully understand the tail lamp treatment in the picture above. You only covered the "stop" light segment. I would imagine you would only tape up the reverse light and paint the rest of the lamp. Where you trying to just cover the stop lights? Don't you think it looks too busy?
If you like it like that, I'd be the first to encourage you to do anything you want. It is your car, and if you like it, that is all you really need.
Just my opinion.


BTW, I have pictures of how I did my sedan. In case you'd like to see them.

vlenhoff - Yea, I wasn't too sure about how the entire light would look so I didn't want to do the entire thing....Can you post or send me pictures of yours.

Thanks

These pics have been around for a while. You may have already seen them. It is very simple, and it makes the red part of the tail light look bigger. I like it. My friends hardly even noticed since it look factory :)




the following is the photoshoped picture I did to see what it would look like.


I hope this helps.
