Home made bumper side markers....

...I guess I am bored on a Sunday night and since I already ordered my AW side markers, I decided to pull the OEMs off and play with a sharpie.
I am actually impressed since they didn't come out too bad (there is no streaking or marks up close) haha....

Looks fine, however, Sharpy ink will not hold up to weather, UV and washing. It'll look like crap pretty quickly. Might as well just sand, spray paint and clear coat if you like black. You will not have to worry about color matching.

..yeah, for sure. I know. I am getting my AW ones in a couple of days and will swap them. Just figure I could play around with the OEM ones...might try other colors or something...
