wow...that looks nice! does it light up at night enough if you used the whole can?

what is the paint called....and which shop did you get it at...

hey spurs....if its on your e30...maybe we can split the can? i mean...there is only the corner blinkers that are orange and then we can lightly go over the other 'already' red parts...just to make it match better?

just a thought to save some $$

The paint is transparent, sorta like a thin sheet of clear red plastic, the light passes right through as if the light was made red.

I think the company was called fola tec or smething... cant remember, and I used the whole can on just my tail lights, so I doubt you'll be able to split the can for 2 sets of lights..

looks good!
i did that to my tail lights on my e36
i have too many bills right now to afford red/clear ones
i think having it all red looks nice too.

i might black out my orange area though later on (kinda like how mercedes does it with their tail lights)

i think that looks good too...but maybe not on my car colour

$35 is expensive for the can of spray though, i think i got mine for $25+tax which is pretty close.

It does look good though =)

Definately too expensive.. But I was desparate, i couldnt find the stuff anywhere.

I have no idea how long it'll last, Randy has it on his tail lights, and its still there. I think they look better on E30's and E34's.. The white/red's look better suited on the E36's cuz you have that complication with the 'reverse' light.
