I actually just shared this elsewhere. I'm sure they have red as well. If you dont have a heatgun get one.
as far as needing a heatgun, i used a hair dryer:)

You do it first so I know what it looks like all red, my girl and I were debating how it would look on our red and I think it would look great.

No worries, when the money's right it'll be done.

RUBIX,

I have the same color, with the dark grill, dark windows and everything. Have you thought about going chrome lights like on the earlier SES cars? I de-tinted my rears and the chrome lets the Sangria pop a little more, the massive amounts of black was killing my car. Another reason is if you do your tails red you might want the light colored ones too so it can help it appear redder.





The only thing I could bitch about is the orange side marker. I think doing my 3rd brake light red is a must though.

I had some extra wrap laying around and decided to tint my third brake light one day:



And from a distance:

It is red! The sun and camera made it look orange that day I guess.

No I actually like the black on the car. As for the tails, I'm planning on getting the LED tails then tinting them completely red. Looks really good so just need the tails first then I'm set.

Well I know what I'm doing now...

I love my LED tails but hate the chrome.

Yours is exactly what I want. Looks great!
