Default LED Tail Light!!!

I decided to repost my pictures .. as these look so good. I bought the eagle eye ones off ebay. I have posted about these in the past. They look great! The only objection I had was the double white strips. I like the reverse white strip as it allows a good amount of reverse light. I did not like the blinker white strip ... with yellow blinker. I was a little nervous to try this .. but I bought VHT red night shade, and taped off the light except the blinker. I gave it 4 coats ... and wow! Looks perfect as you can see from the pictures. Blinker now blinks red and looks perfect. I think this is the way to go.

Did you masked just the clear part and sprayed the entire unit over the original red lens? It look very clean and nice. Can you take more pictures at daytime and dusk in different angles please. I might do the same. Thanks in advance.

I only sprayed the clear part ... I did not spray the entire lens. So I covered everything with tape except the blinker, and just sprayed the blinker. The only thing I would worry about is putting on too much or too little paint. 3 - 4 coats is the perfect color match. For whatever reason you cant really see any sort of line, it just sort of blended in with no extra work. I will try to take more pictures at some point ... but it really looks good.

This is where I got mine. It was a while ago so I dont remember how much I paid. I think all the ones that look like this are made by the same manufacturer. Mine have etched in plastic that they are DOT and made by eagle eye.
