Custom Taillights - Carbon Fiber Altezzas with Spec Blue Paint
Well, these were inspired by the black TYC's that they sell. Black is the only color they sell, so I took matters into my own hands. Below are pictures of the install and finished product. Let me know what you think. I'll try to get some pictures with more sunlight tomorrow.

I then applied a clear Plastic Promoter
Then started with the Spec Blue Paint (about 5 coats)...

There's a local store around here called Bap's. I don't think it's a national franchise. It's about $15 per can for custom colors. They just look up the paint code and produce spec blue. I used it on my headlights and center console too. thumbsup

Man, if you have a place like that..you could charge people 25/can for you to get it for them. Buy it, then keep the 10 bucks profit...

I'd have to get a few people together to make it worthwile. The place is like 20 minutes away and then I'd have to package and ship it. So I'd make about $5 if I did $25 shipped. If you want to try to get a group buy together maybe for $25 plus $5 shipping, that might work. At least 5 people.

That's freakin' awesome man. I don't like Altezza's but those look awesome! I would definitely get in on a can or two of silver for my celi. You said you can use it on the interior too?
