The answer is in the reflection:

Since my car had to be repainted, I had them paint the spoiler gloss black. Its quite nice how it turned out. With the black roof & the tinted tail lights and the carbon fiber overlay diffuser, it looks awesome!

Its been raining for the last couple of days here due to Hurricane Sandy. I may just have to take a bad camera photo to show you guys.
Looks like a scion tc now.lol..just kidding..I like it man!

I am looking to tint my tail lights too, I'm trying to figure out how I should tint them for the best visual effect. I'm leaning towards tinting the red portion and leaving the clear part untinted or tinting the whole taillight. My Impreza is a 5-door.

Default Ready for winter

The winter shoes went on today. I decided to go with Michelin X-Ice Xi3's 205/55/R16 and used a set of steel wheels I had from my Forester's winter garb.

Here she is on Delivery Day two weeks ago:


And here she is today with the new shoes. Please excuse the crappy plastic wheel covers:

I like to leave clear part untinted, it makes the tint more subtle i think. But Wes's rear end makes a case for the other side.


Are you blacking out lights? Then Id do the whole thing.

It'd look better w/ just the steelies, no hubcaps.

Congrats on the new ride.

I'm just tinting with VHT Nite-Shades, nothing fancy. I'm planning to smoke them, I don't like/want them too dark. I think leaving the clear part untinted would be best. What about a progressive/two-toned tint? Where the clear part will be tinted ever so slightly and the remainder of the taillight being slightly darker?
