Thumbs up Tailights redone

I smoked my lights again and this time the results were amazing.. used 2 cans of VHT nite shades.. and it does wonders.. my pictures are really crappy taken from my cell phone and the reflection is hard to get rid of.. but you get the idea.. its pretty much black though..

I'm also curious how the turn signal lights look like

The blacked-out tailights always go great on any dark-colored car

Good job man, this looks much better than the hobby paint!

I was thinking I'd need 1 can of VHT but it looks like I'll need 2 . Now all you need to do is put on a clear coat to protect your work.
