Next time I will do it when it is warmer or use my garage while running the heat in there.I wanted them to be similar to Misfire's but I did a poor job and to top it off I went too dark.


Looks good to me. Did you sand them? One of the reasons I haven't done this is I don't want to sand them and they turn dull constantly as the polishing wears off..
TB is not a color, it's a part time job.

:lol:Modding is whatever you define it as. Some people wanna boost, some people need 10 TVs, and some of these homos feel compelled to LED their cars front to back.
