Anyone consider tinting their tailights red but leaving the reverse lights white. I did a little photoshop work to someones corrado, thanks for the pic by the way.. What do you guys think? I'm considering doing this to mine
I painted my tails and left my reverse lights clear (it looks identical to the photoshop job). Keep in mind when you paint your tail lights, your orange-colored lenses must be painted with a purple/pinkish paint and your reverse lights must be painted with red paint. The all-red color match may not be perfect.
I thought if you got a strong enough red it would just cover the orange completely, and then you put a coat on the bottom part of your tailights (so the color matches). Thats what i've heard. I have never heard of the "purple/pinkish" color having to be used.
had mine like that since waterfest 00. i left my reverse lights clear so i can see backing up. also i didnt use that testors crap. i hear it cracks and runs and drips. i used actual taillight spray. no fading or anything for 2 years now.
