Its really hard to tell how bright they are - without a frame of reference - but what kinda paint did you use.
I would go with blackened-out on my car, and I am prettu sure they make a "special" paint for that that still lets the light shine thru, is that the type of paint you used?
Also I was thinking that IF I did smoke my tails, I might try finding theose brighter red bulbs (or possibly LEDs) to compensate for the color so they would end up being just as bright. Ya think thats a good idea?

Rather then having 3 different colors Black, Red and White.

But it's just my opinion, what you did still looks good, I'm just big into subtle looks. I'm going to do that when I get my WRX wagon

I agree.

well actually the body shop painted em when they did my spoiler and trunk lid. it does shine through a bit not not a whole lot. it was done with primer and same paint that was used to do the spoiler and trunk nothing special just some flex additive for the plastic and fiberglass parts. im sure you could order some touchup spray paint from www.paintscratch.com

i just ordered mine from their ill be painting my sideskirts when it comes in on monday. they guarantee a perfect match ............we'll see.

I used "Nightshades" from VHT on my black wagon and it came out great. It's a piece of cake to use, does not come off, will not run, and the lights still shine through very well. My only problem with it is that the tailights don't "shine" like they used to, so sometimes they don't look as clean as the rest of the car if you know what I mean. I will post some pics later today if I can.
BTW... a Google search for VHT Nightshades should find the stuff quickly.

BLKREXWAGONE, u got any pix to show us? Concerning the "shine" part that u mentioned, does that mean that the black paint has a matte-type of finish to it when its dry? If so, haave you thought about possibly shooting some clear-coat over it to make it shiny?
I think im gonna go buy some paint tommorrow and try it out this weekend - just don;t know which scheme im conna do.
Also, I THINK this stuff is removable - can anyone verify that?

OK, I was bored... so here are the different options on painting these lights... which do you prefer? (I was tempted to start a new poll on this)
