    Talking to me?

    Eh still not sure. I've heard people talking $hit about my car already so I don't want to make it any "gayer" than it is. Although I try not to care what anyone says it still gets to me you know. So I think I might still do it and if I do, I might get this stuff....well in my mind I still think my car looks great, but that old saying goes, "the more you mod it the more haters there are"....chances are someone doesn't like one particular part of your car and then they try and bash you for it, chances are they are just fricken jealous. I just got to ignore those f#gs.

    so what's so gay about your car? i think it looks kick ass.. do you have a cardomain site or something? anyway, i dig it.. i would do the whistler mod though.. that would look sweet with the stripes. and i would definately do the vht night shades.. that looks better than the covers.

    but i opted for the tri color export tail lights. i just haven't made it home from the box yet to put them on.

    I didn't think anything was bad about it myself..thx man. Nobody really visits the cardomain site which is good and no one bashes it on there. When I go visit my parents there's a lot of mustang guys there so you know how that story goes.

    After I did a search, the whistler mod would probably look real kick a$$. Definitely goin to take some time though, but I will do this some weekend when I have time. It will add to all the black there is on the car.

    Here's a poll i set up on Ls1tech.com: http://ls1tech.com/forums/showthread...3&page=2&pp=20

    I figured this would give me a better idea on what other people think. I think it might look pretty good. They think I should do it and one guy actually gave me a great idea. Use a hint of black with some clear coat and have someone professionally paint em....it's an idea, but you can't reverse that of course, unless you bought new tail lights. And like I said before, I'm still not sure what to do and until then it'll stay this way. I do want to do the whistler mod, I just need the time now.

    Anyone got more pictures of their smoked or tinted tails? I'd like to see it on a pewter before I do it.

    here are some pics of mine :
    So it does reflect when headlights are shined on them?

    I just bought all the stuff for the VHT today.

    allbaugh_04, Have you made up your mind yet?

    I will do it if you give me some directions on how to do it. I'm not blacking em either. Just a good smoke look. Someone wrote up how to do it on ls1tech but it's kinda vague. I'm gonna do it eventually now!!!

    Can you believe this I made up my mind...now which wheels to buy? and stall?...crap......shit what tires?

    Been doing the VHT all day. So far it looks pretty good. I've ran out of clear though so I have to finish tomorrow.

    As per doing it smoked. It is a black spray so you can't really do the smoke look. If you do it and don't like it you can reverse it.

    I was under the impression you could just put on a couple coats and you'd achieve a smoke look. You are going to have to tell me exactly how you did yours and how you prepped the lights and stuff. Did you order your VHT online and can you get the clear coat in a can at autozone or what. I heard you really need to lay the clear coat on it if you want it to last.

    I've always seen the "smoke" covers as a grayish color. With the VHT you can do a light coating of black, but it doesn't look like "smoke" to me.

    I got it at O'Reily's. Gave them the product code and they had it in next day.

    For the prep. I cleaned with a lens cleaner to remove any wax and whatnot that was on there. Used 1200 grit to "scuff" the lenses to have a good adhesion area for the paint. Rinse clean and let dry. Then basically follow the directions on the can, except for the clear. It says to do two light coats then one wet coat. I did this on a side marker and the "orange peel" was horrible. So I recommend don't do light coats. Do a couple of wet coats, but don't over do it cause you'll get runs.
