      I think I mightíve left this off the list, but years ago I developed a special way to tint tail lights. Anything from super light (usually called and Atom special) to dark. I typically tint mine super light. It just takes a hair of the harshness out of bright red tail lights.





      I did my personal set really light. It mostly just makes them look fresh and new. I did a junk set darker to use as displays.

      You can kinda see in this photo that they look a bit darker indoors (have yet to wrap the bumper).

      I like it! Just enough to be noticeable. I'm not a fan of dark tinted taillights, it's dangerous for a street car.

      Just ďfor nowĒ until I can come up with something creative. I went with gloss black center and satin black surround (to emulate the wheels/tires) and removed the rear small squares

      I like the gloss/satin combo. I had painted the chrome on my old '98 wagon, but I ended up swapping the grille out for an iron mark badge grille a few months later.



      It'll look really nice on the gray!

      Not yet. The wrap is supposed to be done today though, so Iím hoping to get it to my shop soon. Finish the exhaust stuff.

      Yup, pretty much the same as paint care wise. Bugs and tar are ok. It cleans up well. Some people even ceramic coat their wraps. Rock chips seem to happen a bit less. I guess cause the material is softer so it doesnít really ďchipĒ per se. itís also pretty easy to re-wrap parts. Iíd say has contact is the only thing that worries me. I canít say itís really an issue as much as a self appointed concern.

      I know this is a bit late to the conversation, but I was just getting caught up on the thread. Is this the piece you mean, Will?

      Adam, nice steady progress. Fun to watch it unfold so quickly. Very close to a white R in certain light with that wrap. A little hard to see in the most recent photos, what's up with the gap from outside of the tire to fender? You have an extremely smooth commute?

      Itís a very nice light grey. Gap? Thereís plenty of fender clearance. No rubs at all.

      In the Venetian thread thereís PN for both sides. If someone really gets serious about making up new ones for sale, Iíd be willing to remove mine for samples. In exchange, I would basically just want shipping and a pair of extras as backups.

      I see now. It looked like they were pushed out in the other photos. As you were.

      Awfully nice of your PDR guy to color-match his flooring to your calipers

      Looks great. Have you thought about adding a wing to the rear hatch?

      Is there any rule of thumb for PDR pricing ? Price per dent ? I've got a few that need attention but haven't looked into cost yet.

      My guy is Doug at Dent Solutions.

      Heís a literal magician. He quotes ahead of time, but thereís no set pricing.

      Thinking about it. If I donít get impatient and just put it on before I can make a mold. Plus, I want to mold it to my spoiler, but others have requested the part be an add on. So.....maybe?

      Just make it one piece. Most people's execution of an add-on to their existing wing probably won't be up to your standards and they will buy it either way. Don't put the final appearance of your product in the hands of your customers of unknown skill levels any more than you have to.

      Epoxy/fiberglass doesn't scare me but even then if I was gonna get one I wouldn't want to deal with that if there was an option to have it be one piece. That's going to be a pain in the ass to install. Gonna bet most people asking for it to be an add on think they're gonna save $..........well, maybe, if you value your time at $0........

      Itís sitting at my shop waiting for me to glue door panels back together. Pretty interesting how they separate pretty easy and the clip brackets all pull off. Iíve been spending a few cycles in the ďshop truckĒ lately.
