Default WTT: Taillights, My custom smoked 07's for 06's

i gotta set of 07 taillights. they are custom smoked with VHT nite shades. they are about 30 - 40 % smoked. i love them, but i don't like the chrome. i want a set of 06's that i can smoke. the lights look incredible. after painting, i cleared them with an acrylic lacquer, wetsanded them, cleared them again, buffed with compound, then glazed them. one lamp has a minor scuff. i must have caught it with the edge of the buffer. not even noticable. one lamp is darker than the other. i am going to put a few more coats on the lighter lamp this coming weekend. i will post pics ASAP. looking for local trade. i'm from pittsburgh.

You realize that the 06's have chrome on the bottom of the light too? I think what you want is the 04-05 light...

ummmmmm, am I missing something here? I have an '06 and hated the tail lights - traded for '05. I can't tell any difference from your '07 tails and the ones that were on my '06. I also believe you are looking for '04-05 lights, as they are FTMFW!

Okay, so the 06's are painted, but they're not as dark as to be called gunmetal. The 04-05's are much, much, better... I'm not a fan of the smoked tail look anyway, so please don't ruin a pair of 04-05 tails, definitely stick with your plan to use some 06s...

trust me. my dad has an 06 but its a lease so i can't swap them and smoke them. they are the same style light as each other which i like. but the bottom cleared portion of the 07's is chrome and the bottom cleared portion of the 06's is painted gunmetal or gray. even after i have smoked them, i can still tell its chrome, and i hate chrome.

So why not paint the inside? I seriously doubt that it's actually chrome, it's probably just chrome paint. Here's a guy that did some 06 lights, the process should be the same.
