forget this, throw on the LCI tail lights! those would look so much more impressive.

Agreed. Change them out.

I remember seeing those dark headlights on lowered pickup trucks in the early 90's.

i had the grills and side vents blacked out.. also the wheels will be powdercoated next week.. reflectors are painted too...

actually the whole idea is to make everything black on the car...
otherwise wouldnt paint the taillights alone..

You're a "frozen black" kind of guy. Keep doing what you're doing...I'm sure it looks great.

barely see the lights if you blink your eyes a couple of times... too dark.

Well, if it actually were "frozen" black car instead of gloss then the lights would look ok. I say put the LCI lights on. Or paint the car a "frozen" or matte black. Maybe a vinyl wrap would do?


Cheers.

leave painting taillights to JDM. a very slight tint to give it the blackline look is one thing, but fullblown tint or painting is ruining the car. my opinion
