Now why would you waste your money on those all reds when you can paint yours for $40?!?!

*no-no*

I would cancel that order and PM empowerd. He can tell you what/where to get the paint.

There's the usual positive feedback coming from Rob. Was wondering why it took so long.:rolleyes:

I personaly like the red tailights, but as Dave said it, you might of been able to paint them, and make them look as original. Empowerds were painted and looks awsome.

i looked into painting them...i know you can use foliatec stuff...but from what i've seen it doesnt turn out too well (my opion)...plus i'm waiting to hear back from the guy, i might get the smoked ones instead..

Rob won't paint them white! He will mostlikely find something on DTM and copy it. *mumble*

Jeremy,

Check out the following link. He just painted the corners, however I'd had better luck painting the entire thing as it looks alot better (2nd link).

Hey do what looks the best for the least $$$
