Tail light cover color


Recommended Posts


I personally don't care for the mono-chrome look. These pictures are of the site owner Mike's car. He has been talking about going back to a contrasting color on his car.

I think the original flat gray/silver metalic is great on some color cars, and semigloss black works on almost all colors. Then I don't care for lip glossed tires either, nice and black with a low sheen.

Satin black looks great. Easy to do with a good quality spray can. Take them off the car, give them a light sanding and get them nice and warm in the sun. Spray away.

Don't forget to tape up the stainless trim!

I've seen all sorts of darker and/or contrasting finishes that look good. But the design of the panels seems to work best with contrast, not body color.

My opinion only, of course. No offense meant for those of you who like them body color.

It is on my list Arne. I am growing to dislike this more and more every time I look at it. It just looks wrong. I have a good painter who will do the work at a decent price, $500 for tail, lower right and left sides, and spook. And I have Les's rattlecan paint as well on my shelf. Hopefully I'll get her done this year.

Understood. Like my car and the sunroof. I always disliked it, but took amost two years to get around to doing something about it.

After paint the rear light panels,

You might be able to use 600-800 Grid water paper to get just the black paint off the original paint to maintain your original paint!

If you need color matching referece for your rear panels, I will let you borrow my new lensence plate light to match the gray color.
