^ hes rad with the can (painted his turns and fogs too.)

i have been thinking about blacking mt tails with some window tint. like either 50% for a smoked look or 5% to black them out. im not sure though. it would be kinda cool to put the mirror film on them but the mirror finish would be on the side facing the lens not the outside :( and i think it would be illegal (sun would glare on them)

Ya, I definitely need to do something with my tails. I seriously get sad every time I look at them. Maybe I'll hit them up with some tint. That might look nice on my black ride, especially once LIU gets the V.1 Stealth corners back in and I get some stealth projector headlights with the HID retrofit. Man, I'm excited!!!! :cheers:

Isnt there a way to remove the orange reflectors? You just hafta bake the tails and remove the orange, as I've been told.
I like the SE-L tails, but they're too hard to find, so this might be the only way to go for me. :(

i smocked mine with model car spray paint it's called smoke or smoked from tamiya they sell it at any hobby shop, dont know if it helps :thumbup:
i bought some awile ago and it was a purple color and was the worst spray ever! it came out clumpy, and splatterd. it would just be way to easy to mess up. i think the stick on tint is a much safer way to go.

They're easy to get, but they are expensive. Call Greg at Mossy nissan and he can have them to you in a few days.

Awesome.

What about the trunk bar? I like the carbon fiber look of the 99 SE-L. I remember someone on here saying that a roll of carbon fiber simulator sticker could be bought, but I cant find the thread

Ive been looking at other nissan forums, and other threads about painting tail lights...looks like the best way to do it is to open the tails and paint them from the inside, not the outside...

Greg can get you almost anything you want. I've been looking for both the tails and the trunk bar on the used market, hopefully I'll find them one day.
