I can't beleive how great these got. im so happy. these were stock tail lights. I first smoked the tops. the color never came thru at day or night and i was lucky i didnt get a ticket. then i got stained glass paint which was no transparent at all. so i got some red transparents model spray and boom! look at this. the bottom is the stock red. and the top has three coats of the spray and 2 coats of clear coat. you almost cant tell where one begins!
I just had to share this.

This took me 2 other tries with other paint. i tried spray paint. BLEH.

Eastcoast... I have heard of this paint and even have a part number, but couldn't seem to find it on the web. I guess I'll have to make a trip to my local hobby shop. Is it in a spray can? Those lights are lookin' good! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
hey guys, people have been using testors for years to spray lights
i used it back in the day on my a2 jetta
keep in mind, the paint will fad
so, keep a can handy, cause youll need to respray every few months to keep em lookn new http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I bought a can of smoked spray that is imported from Japan, and actually made for tinting auto parts. It cost me $30 and it doesnt fade out or anything. If any of you guys live in Philly then go to Carative Import in Chinatown and pick some up.
