    Default Side Indicator Lenses in Black

    I have been looking all over for a set of Black/smoked side indicator lenses for my 06 Sri Vec C but Iím coming up short.

    Found loads of Vec B items which doesn't help

    Iím sorry if this has been done to death already but I did have a good search here but again came up empty. That could be me mind you.

    Could someone point me in the direction please?

    Much appreciated

    Not sure they are available, many have colour coded them themselves. A couple of light coats of paint does the trick nicely.

    I used the tinting spray from halfrauds, foltec I think it was. Also de-gingered the tail lights and gave the red parts a light coat.

    Thanks all that really helps.

    So it looks like im in the garage again this weekend playing

    EDIT : I like the idea of a light coat on the red rear bits but for the moment I think I will stick to the sides only. Im not that brave, not yet anyhow

    i just used tinting spray on mine, just make sure you do lots of thin coats to build it up, otherwise they will look crap and spray will pool
