think i should get 04 smoked tails for my black sentra or paint my stocks similar to these? both would look equaly good and price isnt really a concern, its what looks better

choices :(

ive been pondering the same issue except i have a third choice, completely red out the se tail lights (turn single red too). i love the way that looks but i still cant find candy apple paint at walmart. they have cherry and every other shade of red except candy apple.

order it online? might be a bit longer wait then walking into a store and buying it but you may be able to get it cheaper

the only thing i worry about is getting/cutting out a template to make such a design on the taillight. im horrible at doing crafty things like this :)

I definitely like the red out tails. I have them on my car as well. If Wal-Mart doesn't have the transparent candy apple red, try K-Mart or a local hobby store. Worst case scenario is that you just go ahead and order online. It's like $2 or something.

As far as painting it, just take the taillight off the car, tape it off carefully, and paint. I used 6 coats of paint and 2 coats of clearcoat. Worked out pretty well I think.

Did you paint inside the housing or outside?

piknockout, when the paint dried, could you see the lines that are tell tale signs that a paint brush was used? thats the only thing im worried about, that the brush lines will show and then it will look crappy. im gonna locate that paint asap. lol

No paintbrush is used, it's a spray paint. If you get really close you can tell that they were taped off and painted, but it's hard to really tell.
