Got some VHT "Night Shades" transparent tailight lens paint from Summit and went to town this morning. Three light coates and a coat of clear. I think with my new tinted tails (coming Tues.) it will pull it all together. Thoughts?

Looks sharp, stupid question, can you see the bulb (well) through the tint? Off topic, what wheels/tires and drop kit are you running.

Yes you can see the light when it lights up, the paint is transparent. The wheels are Helo Cash 22x9.5 +15 offset with 285/30/22 Dunlop 9000's. The drop is the Eibach 1.6" kit.

Does it cut down or reduce the light that comes through?? Like a window tint??

If I had to guess bigslim, the chrome bumper studs are to fill in the holes the blockhead dealer put in for the plate. They are a nice touch.

Yes it cuts down a bit, but is certainly visible when the light is on.

Looks great. Can you offer any assistance in removing the lens. I am considering tinting my lens depending on difficulty.

You need to remove the facia or you could just mask the area off VERY well and go to town...

That looks really nice and I am sure that the rear taillamp covers will really set it off.

A little off topic, but with the Eiback 1.6" drop, do you have any clearance problems? I still don't have a 300c yet, but I am already planning some things for it and 22" wheels with the drop is on that list. I will probably using the car as a daily driver...so I don't want to have to cut the corners of my driveway like I have to do with my S2000, Awesome car though!!
