Thanks, it seems like it's always a "work in progress" with all the ideas from the other forum members.

I wish I knew then what I do now. I would have taken my stock tails, did the "redout" thing, and then wrap them. Actually, Dagojoe wrapped them for me, I wasted around $60 of vinyl trying to do it. He did a perfect job on them.

Luckily my SIL has a wrapping business, he's the one who did all the black.

Cool! I/m still struggling with trying to CF wrap my interior door pulls. A real PITA. I can do it with just solid color wrap, but the CF just doesn't want to cooperate.

I hear that, if you overstretch CF it distorts the pattern.

Yes, it does!! I'm about ready to give up on it and just do satin black or something.

I forgot to post my homemade under the rear seat storage. Had some leftover pieces of the aluminum channel from another project, and bingo.

There's a thread somewhere on here, can't even remember who, that he taped off the nonchrome areas, and painted over the chrome with red tint or paint on the lens. Came out very nicely, and a whole lot less $$ than a full replacement. Maybe he'll see this and reply.
I found the guy who did the Testor's Model Paint mod for the taillights. Just saw the tag option...lol johnday

I'd forgotten Grim Reaper did that. Haven't seen from him for awhile, but he's another that always does quality work. There was someone more recent though, within the last 2 weeks that did a nice job too.
