Tinted Fender Grill lights

Decided to give it a try. I bought the tint decal off ebay. Install was easy, took 10 mins each side.

Here are some pics.

Will snap some more pics when it's on the car tomorrow. It's late and cold outside.

Enjoy!




UPDATE:

! Sorry guys for the long wait, been raining here a lot lately in the bay area. I wanted to wait till the sun comes to get better and clear pics.


Anyway, I just snapped some pics of it on the car. Will update the original post. (Car is dirty)

Here you go.

Ebay item number: 280282428374

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Smoke...8374QQtcZphoto

$6.99 can get you a lot of vinyl ! After tinted the fender bulb, there was plenty of it left so I did this too.

I dont think Jlevi is offering a full Badge Replacement. The last time I checked, they offered stick-on which IMO FAILS!

I got it from this sponsor.
