Thanks!


I finally got some more shots - but sadly with a droid phone ... hoping to have better quality images coming soon.

Yeah, I found the hard way you cant rush nightshading, or painting for that matter. They look awful dark. I can't do that to mine completely, I'll get pulled over in a heart beat. I nightshaded mine but left the light portions unpainted.

They are dark - but even during the day you can see the signals and brake lights perfectly - I was worried about though to the first time I saw em ... I used the rustoleum equivalent to VHT which in my opinion is a bit better transparency wise

Good deal. Did you paint those wheels? We got the same color and I dont like the aluminum color.....thinking of painting/plasti dipping gunmetal, something darker.

That I did. Got the set for 200$ - they had some rash on them of course but sanded them down and did 3 coats of Automotive filler primer, 3 coats of color and 3 clear.

I didn't want to rush those lol it took about an hour an hour and a half per wheel.

For the interior (I'm assuming door panels) I used a maroon/red color from duplicolor... I did not use a layer underneath but I did sand lightly (the plastic) before applying the color. The black I used a duplicolor vinyl paint without any other layers under it and did not sand.
