Anyone tried that exact paint on E30 tails? I wanna know how well it would match the stock plastic red.

Folia Tec makes good stuff, their caliper paint is very high quality.

I used that stuff on my tail lights. Works great, just make sure to spray everything on the tail light except the white reverse section. No need to blend the orange section with the factory red when it can all be sprayed. Make sure you use very light coats and take your time. Here's a pic of my tail lights...

just buy the 5$ glass/plastic paint from CT, works just as well, and the candy apple red matches perfectly!

I used a $3 can of Testors model paint, it looks perfect. I only painted the amber turn signal section.

i think u guys jus killed any chance of
M50E30 getting a sale.

But its tru, Why spend so much. There is no way the quality is gonna be soo high to justify the price.

I've done it on an E36... it didn't look as good as on an E30.

Not really a fan of E36 all-reds either. Clears or bust.

It looks nice on E30 but on E36 It is kinda too red .I mean it is up to you if you wanna get clears or all red.

I don't care about the sale. I know they will sell at that price...since alot of people have asked about it recently I thought I would give maX members first crack at it before I got them.
