Re: [DML] Re: Taillight Tinting



A couple of years ago I had the paint shop at the industrial design 
company I worked for mix up some semi-transparent acrylic paint in the 
correct orange color.  It looked good, and stayed on the car for about 3 
years, but finally started wearing off again.  I finally gave up and 
just bought new lenses from Rob, after trying the sharpies, trying the 
stained glass paint, and just about everything else you can think of 
also.  New lenses are expensive, but they are worth it!  Make the car 
look brand new from the back, and if you don't constantly park your car 
in the sun, they should stay looking nice for a good long time.

See everyone in a week,
Josh
VIN 5102
VIN 15964
and the rest...
