I got bored today, and seeing as I really want a european version of the nearside light and I cant understand german ebay to see who will ship to the uk, I thought to myself I would do a DIY style for a temporary time just to see how it looks.

So here it is. Opinions welcome of course.

I've tried the firefox translation on the German eBay, the chrome version is much much better.

Open this in Google Chrome:

Here - takes you straight to a German eBay search for lights.

Should spray the whole light including the indicator strip, will look better than amber and then if you go over with lacquer it will look OEM and kinda smooth euro style with it being all red.

Fair enough mate, just would be something different and more modern looking but up to you.

I would atleast mask off the whole bottom strip instead of just the reverse square...then tint that, then lacquer the whole cluster, plus lots of cutting back and buffing will give you a more OEM and glossy finish, and you won't be able to tell its been done.

It look a bit OTT with red I personally think. I havent had time to search yet, ill do it later at some point. The orange breaks up the lights I think. All red is more dub scene :)
