View Full Version : ?corner turn signal blackout?

05-23-2002, 08:02 PM
i am about to black out my corner turn signals and the trim on the headlights and the corners of the top grille....im gonna use that plastiky or vinyl type sticker crap.....like the stuff decals are made of...anyone done this or any recommendations what kind of stuff i should use?? if you did this please show me a pic if possible

i dunno if the sticker stuff will work... i smoked my side signals and it looks pimp. i also smoked out the lens part of the flip up light cover. so when the lights are down during the day, theres a while strip of smoked lights. :D i think you should do that.

Try this stuff (http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/ProductDisplay?prrfnbr=3909&prmenbr=361)

Here are the results


The lights are still functional because they are just tinted.

As AccordLX said use VHT night shades. This stuff works great

where would you buy the night shades spray?
just like napa or wal-mart

accordlx gave you a link to buy it. Jegs kicks ass. They do mail/internet orders. Wal-Mart is not cool enough to carry something like that, although you have a slim chance at napa.

Looks like Jegs jacked up the price to $11.99 a can. Shit I payed $10 at their store a few months ago. I guess thats the perk of being in Columbus.

Wow koney that looks slick. I gonna get another can and do that to the "eyelids" and the grille.
I have mine painted black and it does not look ok but yours looks great.

I did my rear and I am happy with it for now.

thanks man, this is 2nd time ive done it if you go to www.cardomain.com/id/koney and look on page 1, you will see that my bumper is still the champagne color and that there is a little primer on my "eyelid", also note that the chrome trim in grille is still chrome then

accordlx your car looks nice! for the eyelid covers, did you paint the insides? I wanna get the dark color without sacraficing the gloss of the plastic on the outside.

01-18-2004, 06:39 PM
look on my cardomain, i jus used black spray paint, barely see through tho.

01-18-2004, 10:31 PM

i need to find something to darken up the turn signals...i'm thinking using the tint like jigga did cause i'm gonna black out my tailights...

very nice bitesize, did you paint from the inside? did you open it and paint it from the inside? How many coats is that also? thanks.

Also..is that front bumper different. I notice the top of the bumper is all black yet the bottom is all colored. Very very nice job indeed.

Just painted the outside, i am a master at painting. :) I put about 5 coatings.

The bumper is supposed to look like that. It's a hatchback.

/me sucks at painting.. I better hold off till i figure how to prevent dullness from happening.

01-19-2004, 05:09 PM
i think i might try spraying my bumber lenses with that and seeing how it looks

There's no I in team...but there's no F**kin WE either.

there is no I in team..but there is ME!

hey RyanLXi, that idea with the decal black vinal will work. although, sometimes it will get lots of swirl marks if you let it get dirty and then wash it ungently. i was going to try that on my stock tails to make some type of design in them. never have done it yet, but i may try. if you do decide to do the vinal on them, make sure you clean the hell out of them with rubbing alcohol, that works realy good on plastic. make sure use cotton cloth that is very soft. also good if you do the night shades on them to clean them up like that.

hey busted..hows the import scene in san fran?? i was out there a few months ago and didn't see too many, some off i think 29th, thatever street runs by the mall. but that's it.

01-20-2004, 05:18 PM
import scene...heh its more like ricer scene. most of my friends that have the good cars dont come out.

01-20-2004, 10:15 PM
that sucks..the denver scene used to kick ass but it got shut down, now if a cop sees you drive past him 3 times you get like an 8 point ticket or something. you guys ever meet up and cruise?? next time i get out there, not any time real soon, i'd like to kick it and see some of the rides there
