DIY Silver/Red Spray tail lights
heres how to silver and red DIY spray tail light

ok first you going to have to remove 4 screws

then remove the tail light carefully and remove the bulbs

this are the stuff you will need to complete the job

then clean the head light with microfiber cloth

make sure you clean the cracks

then use black tape(electrical tape) make sure you line it up with the black rubber between the orange and the red tail light

and also do the upper part

now take some newspaper and masking tape and cover up the red tail light and behind the tail light

now its time to spray it silver remember ppls spray it a constant speed and DONT LEAVE IT TOOOO LONG it will over spray and bleed, make sure to let it dry and do another coat

Nice write-up. I dont like them at all, though.

It looks nice. Anything is better than that awful orange. I'd want to see what red tails look like on your car, though; it might blend in more on your red car. I went with red paint on the inside of my '95 tail lights. The orange clashed a little too much with my gold emblems and gold/tan paint, I think. And it's just so much cleaner.

Also, I wonder if they make transparent silver? I'd think it would look more like clears if the paint were transparent.

how well does the light shine through? Also what paint did you use?

iasc300 09-15-07 04:43 PM

looks good but why the silver? It would look better painted a different color
nice DIY though

Good write up. They remind me of 91 Prelude tail lights. How does it look illuminated?

I probably wouldn't do this, but good work on the idea and paint. Here is a similar one that another user did which is probably a bit easier to do:

its different. :thumbup:

like others have said...hows the light output?

habitat 09-15-07 06:58 PM

It's different, I still prefer that red tail light color match paint over silver. but good write up!
