painting project...

I'm thinking of painting the inside of a stock set of 04 tail lights black.(becuase I really like the style of the 04 tails but not the shinny red look. And I don't like any of the aftermarket tails for the Celica) Any one have any tips or suggestions?

i heard it's a pain in the ass to take it apart.

idk if you can put the thing in the oven like the headlights do or not... cos i dont think the material is the same.

good luck thumbsup

that might look nice, i agree i have an '04 and i wouldn't change my taillights at all. I think the overlays i think that is what they are called) bat offers might look good!

i think this is one area where i would refer you to Bat's overlays as opposed to painting... there aren't any smoke or transparent black paints that you can use (for a reasonable price) that will even hold up to the heat of the tail-light bulbs.
