    If you look at the inside of the passenger light, you'll see two "fisheyes", or airbubbles under the paint. I was pissed when I saw those. I tried my best to keep my fingers off of the lights while I was painting, but I guess I wasn't careful enough. I have to take it off, sand it down in those areas, and repaint. Luckily, they are located where there is straight black paint, so I don't have to worry about evening out the VHT.

    Edit: Oh, and ignore the dirtiness of my car, like I said, It's been sitting in my garage for 3 months
    Great job, looks awesome!

    I actually thought the same thing....it looks awesome as it is right now, but I was trying to visualize how it'd look with the filler panel gaps closed up...

    one idea for you if you want to, lots of older European cars had a small driving light mounted under the back bumper (this also comes in handy when some jack a$$ behind you runs up on you with his highbeams on)

    It's already blacked out, but I'm thinking of painting the top of it black, so the sunlight doesn't shine through and make it appear untinted.

    Have them sanded and buffed. VHT will make them a lot darker, unless you want that

    great work man. That shit looks nice.

    For the reverse lights, you could always do them on the inside part near the license plate. The Monte Carlo does it this way.

    Also, throw up some pictures of the taillights on during the day and dusk. I'd like to see how much light gets through.

    Thanks
