    Default Tinting after work!

    More mods again today, addictive this!

    tinted side repeaters and reverse lights using savage lens tint

    i dont know if it is obvious from pic but left rear seems to have frosted over a little compared to the right, may have been down to the sun, might just be me being anal but might do it again, what do you think? or might just leave it as it is if not blatantly obvious

    as always comments welcome

    I was thinking to rub both lens down slightly with wet/dry paper to frost them both o. The laquer, rather than lens itself, then do a few more layers to darken then

    I'd do a few blast over the full face of the lense now. darken the lot off and get a good finish. If you can get your hands on a machine polisher they'll look factory once buffed up. I spent ages trying it by hand, 30 seconds with a polisher worked wonders...

    Probably get rid of that frosting too with some finishing compound.
