Project #1 complete, Projects 2, 3 are almost done. pics inside (56k mabey)

Super secret project #1 was complete earlyer this week. I painted my 18 In Velox VX-8s.
Befor


After


Super secret project #2 is painted and drying, Its cold so it will take longer. I molded the plug in and it looks awsome, I do have one boo boo the clear ran a tiny bit by one of the light moldings. Easy fix but still.
Befor

After, still drying but still hott

Where did the plug go?


Super secret project #3, This was a last minute project that I had not origanly though of but a set of stock light arived earlyer than expected so I wanted to try it out. Tinted clear coat was used after I sprayed my bumper, it gives it a nice rich color and a depper gloss than normal nightshaded tails. Once it stops raining I'll put them on so for now I'll stare at them in antisipation.
Old nightshaded lights.

New Hotness beging to be insatlled.

You were really close to geting a ear full from me, lol. Thanks for clearing it up.

Everyone else thanks I cant wait to see the final projects done and installed myself. Hopefully I'll have some finished pics by next week. Tails will be on tommarow if its not raining and the bumper this weekend. The wheels will be put on just for some pics then there off again, cant drive around on no treads for too long. Tires will be on order in a few weeks then my car will get put in storge in may

Thanks for the comments keep them coming
