Tell you the truth most of the times, when I post something I am not always that excited with the outcome. I will say that I did it this time, just like I wanted and expected.

First I will say these lights are not all that great, they are from Ebay called Sonar, and they are OK at best. They are certainly not the quality of the factory parts. I dont like how on the side view, you see a lot of the light and it just doesn't look right to me.

SO, I decided to paint the outer edge and the side as well to match the car. I got the paint from the dealer, I taped off where I wanted the lines, sanded, scotch bright, then adhesion promoter, then paint 4 coats then cleared.

Man, this turned out better than I expected.

Check back tomorrow for pics outside on the car in the morning!

In another thread I painted the rear wing to match the dark gray/black roof on the car!

I am thinking if I want to airbrush it on or put the wing on... I hate the way the wing is so thick.

Less than $22.00 too... 1 small can from Chrysler factory paint, lil bit of adhessive promoter, and way less than one can clear!

VERY nice. I'm not normally a fan of these LED/filament hybrid tail-lights, but these actually look pretty damn good!

That's a nice little addition there, Paul. And when you get tired of it you just flick on the stockers. It kind of makes the whole back end look different, which I like since there are so many of these cars out and about now.

Nice.

hemi4me, i need step by step direction to do that mod!!!!!!!!!! lol dj griff
U mean the tailights, or filling the holes?

Lights were easy...

Prob with the holes is there is NO WAY to get behind them. There is no room between the 2 layers of sheet metal back there.

VERY EASY... 3.5 hours or so...

First I had the Sonar LED lights, and they were smoked from them I think they were like $150.00 on Ebay.

1. Tape off the inside while they are on the car. (Start with the curve part first, get it where you want it, same on both sides preferably).

2. Remove the lights easily only 3 plastic nuts.

3. Sand where you are painting with 400 grit to get the plastic scuffed up.

4. Use scotch bright or a san paper to smooth everything up so its not quite so rough.

5. Use a spray Adhession Promoter from Auto zone made by duplicolor.

6. Spray on 3-4 coats of paint (I used the one from the dealer its like $12.00 for a small can) get a good cover, and keep checking to be sure you didnt miss any spots. You dont want to be able to see thru it.

7. Clear coat heavily I just used one from autozone Duplicolor but I am sure you could get one from Chrysler for more money.

lights look great, but i`m not excited about the style, they seem not to line up to the cars body lines as good as the factory ones.
