    I done a test attempt wit red spray today on an old set of tails i have and it ended up lookin like a farm shed painted wit red oxide!!:L

    first stop is a euro spec passenger side tail light it has a red but at the bottom instead of the reversing light..... then you just have to tint the amber...

    That stuff on ebay looks gud!
    I just used some **** plastic red paint from halfords, it was too bright and u cant see the lens tru it, i then cleaned the nozzle on the can and brought it back and told them it was wrong and got my money back :L

    time for some more snaps

    i want to tint my tail lights red, i thought it wud be a gud idea to test this out first, it was a gud job that i did!! the experiment was carried out on my piece of sh1t pug expert which i never drove!!
    lights before


    and lights after


    this is wat happens when u buy from halfords!!, it looked very similar to a galvinised shed painted with red oxcide!!

    a couple more pics never done no harm
    just to let yas know i wash this van about 3 times a week even if its not dirty, but it has been raining the past few days so there is no point, good irish weather, so in my eyes the van at the moment is filthy :L



    theres the gud pug :P

    God I'm bored, i might buy something

    looks like you bought some sort of ugly red paint instead of tinting spray.....
