Smoked my taillights today

Discussion in 'FX (03-08) - Interior & Exterior' started by robb<35>, Jan 25, 2008.

  1. as the topic states today i got my tail lights smoked, they look great and i have got a lot of compliments of how good they look, the body shop i go to painted my bumper since there were minor scratches that i could'nt buff out, so while he was at it i told him to smoke them, here are some pictures,

    yeah, I did mine awhile back too... what a difference! It was either get the clear lights, which would've cost more or get'em smoked... The body shop that I deal with only charged me $50 which I thought was pretty reasonable. Now, when I see another FX with the plain red tail lights... it just looks... well plain

    :mad: I have plain Red!!!! :mad: ;)



    I really want the clear ones.

    Rob, now all you need now are some bat overlays for the reflectors/brake light to finish her off.

    Looks really good...not completely black but more of a dark red. i really like it. i probably would have gone that route in the end if i didnt get sport tails.

    +1 on getting some reflector overlays. theyre pretty cheap and they make the back look a lot more complete (blends in more with the bumper)

    opps, sorry... [​IMG] but if you got the clear ones... your FX will look 100% better;)

    when you guys say "bat overlays" what exactly are you guys talking about? The link shows a bunch of stuff?

    I think the guys name that makes them is Andrew - but goes by Blue Batmobile on the forums - so everyone just kinda adapted to "Bat overlays" as a general term.

    But in this case they were talking about the reflectors on the rear bumper

    oh, but why the word "BAT"? I keep thinking there's some kind of "bat" sticker like you would see on the batmobile or something

    You have to go to a body shop to paint them black for you. No one sells them black.
     
  19. So to a normal body shop with a normal black paint ? Humberto bambino it means baby .... Ragazzo means boy and uomo means men...... But please you have to teach me english mine is not so good...... men Obviously I'm joking not for my english that's looks bad ... but for the italian words!!!!!!
