i miiiight have DIY'd these. its kind of obvious. Its a bit of a hackish job if you really look at it but i think it looks good enough to last me until i get some real tails. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Did you use NiteShades? If so, how many coats?

I used the Testors window tint for models. on top of that i used the testors gloss clearcoat. I did about 10 coats of tint and 2 of clearcoat. The clearcoat wrecked it though because It isnt as glossy as i expected so I sprayed a bit too much and it ran in a few spots

i wish i could help you clear coat...because i did the same thing as you clearcoating the tails is kinda tricky...what you did is you just sprayed like you did with the nightshades..with the clearcoat, when you start to spray it and see that gloss you have to keep spraying and move with the gloss.. dont be to worryed about runing it takes alot of it to run...and make sure to take the tails off when doing this! its really easy just 3 bolts for tail and then pull out..

I did mine with niteshades too, then clearcoated. I do have a pic of all the lights on it somewhere.... I can dig it out if you really want, but the reverse lights shines thru bright white still.
