not bad! The red is a little bright for my taste, but that is only my opinion. What counts is it looks like you did a quality job!

Anyone have a good approach to getting the red lines on the white marker?

Just did this and looks great. The clear honestly makes it look worse imo so i skipped it. I keep my car covered most of the time so it should be fine without any clear anyhow

Just did this to my lights, I painted the whole light red though, no clear signal. I hate clear and I hate chrome. Unfortunately one of the lights needs to be color sanded as the paint ran low on the final pass, its a bit hazy, but all in all for $5 it beats spending $200+ on Evo VII's

EDIT: Stripped the bad tail and will repaint, here is a pic, sorry its from my bberry...

as long as you take your time they will turn out awesome. And please dont be lazy. Remove the 2 screws and the electrical connection and take the tails off the car. Its so simple and its how it should be done. I bet it takes longer to tape and newspaper everything off anyway.
