Going back to stock...PICS

my tail lights tho. i decided to sand them down all the way to stock red so i can put a light vinyl tint on. was gonna try to sand them down to the tint i wanted but it wouldve took too long. this way is easier plus both tails will match. lol

i kinda like how it looks red tho..

i think you definitely need to tint them a little darker. cuz right now to me it looks a little funny because you almost have 3 colors going on. the tails are darker than the body, but not as dark as the trunk. i would give it a light tint so their still red, but duller and dont stand out as much. like i said though, just my 2 cents

if i do nightshades and dont get the tint i want or if it messes up trying to match the two, im gonna have to sand it all over again. dont want that to happen. plus before when i blacked em out, it was easier to do that

here are some further away pics i think it looks good









so what do you think??[
