This is interesting. Do you have more information on this? Such as which item did you buy, how to apply, etc. ?

Thanks!

If you decide on painted reflectors, we do have a set of Space Grey in stock.

Thanks for the picture Nick!! I know you recommended I go with the smoked because of my plans to go black out theme, but do you think that the clear will look good because it matches the clear/fogged corner lens just above it even with the black out?

I wish Moog55 posted clear pics of his car!!

With the clear or smoked reflector at least it looks like they were meant to be there instead of just some random piece of plastic covering.

That's just my opinion.
+1. painted looks horrid. I would go clear.

What color would look best on Jerez Black? I will have Blacked out Kidney's and Side grills.

Also thinking about blacking out the Chrome Accents around the roof line and windows. Who does this? Are the Chrome Accents stripped off or painted?

Thanks.
