Just Nightshaded,Painted Bowties,Tinted windows and Painted hubcap covers

So i had a free day and a can of nightshade and thought what the hell i might as well tint my taillights and paint my bowties. I did paint my hubcap covers but they are in the process of drying at a buddies house, so for now i am rocking the steelies. Tell me what you think. sorry for the crappy iphone pics.
