    Default Tinted rear lights...AGAIN!!!!

    Having tinted the light's red previously i wanted a change and wanted them to be more subtle against the black bodywork.

    So having been on hols this week i thought what the hell and whipped them off and done them a smoke tint, they have been laquered and just need a final sand and polish, but i'm struggling to get some 2000grit wet and dry.

    Also i masked off the refelector and didnt do the light's too dark either

    Anyhoo here are the pics as per usual

    Looks very nice, need some night time pics to compare brightness levels!

    I like the laquering idea, I've never done that and ended up with a matt finish!

    I always assumed that 2000 was the highest, i'm gonna go to a local bodyshop supplier near me and i will ask for that

    Cheers for the tip *AJ*
