Still need to PlastiDip fog light bezels and buff out the clear on the tails. Work in progress. Little dirty and lots of bug matter, needs a wash, but waiting for paint to cure.
I really like this! After seeing yours, I had to see those wheels on my SGM.

I may end up having to do the beltline, though I was kinda hoping to keep it chrome...
Ok so I did the taillights this evening, and they don't look to bad, I'll post some pics tomorrow after I get home from work.

Ok, so I Plasti-Dipped my taillights last night. I don't think they turned out all that bad. However, I did not like the flat look, so I took a soft cloth and applied some tire shine by Armor All and low-and-behold! it gave it a really nice shine. I did do some other testing over the weekend and found that you can use standard spray paint on the "dipped" area and still peel it off with no bleed through or getting to the cars surface. So now on to the pics.









There ya go, let me know what ya think. The next thing I may try is to get a can of touch up spray paint, from a auto parts store and try to somewhat match the factory black. Wish me luck!!

@Rocker

That looks so much better on the sedan! It also works really well with the tuxedo black. Mine are so tall and seem out of place to me. I'm going to give it a week and go from there. I'm pretty sure that in the end I am also going to leave the rear side markers too...I'll edit a pic in as a rough example tonight.

Do you intend on putting eyelids on that will cover the front markers?

Edit: Here's the rough idea of what I was initially going for to keep some side reflector-

Car looks great! Except for the lights. I don't understand why people are covering the lights. I think the red contrasts really nicely with the black. Adds a bit of color to the picture.

I really like what you did with the side of the car!! Looks sick!

I am still not sure if I really like the looks of the lights yet, I am going to leave it on for a few days to see if it grows on me.

I actually think it looks sweet! It really goes well with the other design work on your car!
