    Default Second attempt at colour coding side indicator lenses

    My first attempt went quite well until I found one would not let too much light through and probably would be a MOT failure.

    So I bought some more from Ben here on the forums. Thanks again Ben you really helped me out.

    Sanded them down and painted them again but this time was so careful not to put too much paint on. Quite a few very fine layers this time.

    I think they have come out great this time round.

    Oh and it always helps to have Ben 10 on hand when I need to take pics and dont have enough arms

    Thanks for the kind comment and tip. It didn't occur to me to take the others with me to the garage and ask for their opinion.

    Another job of many finshed before the Luton meet.

    Next on the list is finishing the painting of the mudflaps and cutting out some perspex lenses to cover the led light boards placed in the boot.

    See what this forum does to do
