all red tails!

well i did the "all red tail lights' today, and it turned out, next to perfect! It looks amazing, and the improvement it made on a white car, left me astonished. I also got the center lights(high beams) done in yellow(for a more european look), and it turned out all right. I had a hard time putting them back, adn they arent adjusted at all....

Here is a quick question tho. Before removing the high beams, i could have all four (low/high beams) ON, and my Fogs still stayed on, NOW, i can have the Low beams plus fogs ON, and when i turn the High beams on, the fogs go off. What gives?

I've read that there is a spray you can buy at the craft stores that mimics stained glass on your regular windows. Supposedly that stuff will also work on our tail lights to change the colour.
