Decided to start a new topic with all the details. Read the Techinfo article and click on my sig pic to see the taillight blackout procedures and before and after pics of my 93 SSEi last year.
Since then, I've done Jseabert'* 93 SSE, and today I did my 95 SLE/SC. These pics are it, in progress. I did them exactly as before, but not as dark. The 93 SSEi was done to hide delamination. The 95 was done today to make the cars look a bit more uniform, and provide more of a 'stealth' look.
Yes, I know NOW that I have a taillight 194 bulb out on the driver'* side. I'll deal with that tomorrow. Enjoy the pics:
Freshly cleaned and de-greased:
Dried and masked:
The magic can, lights dusted carefully in the background:
First coat, barely visible. I did 3 VERY light coats:
Second coat, a little more visible:
Third coat, lighting is different, but these are slightly darker:
After 2 coats of Clear Satin (not gloss), and de-masked (I'll seal them with liquid glass in a couple days after full curing):
Installed (sun left me):
With taillights on (I know I need to replace a bulb):
Right turn signal on:
Reverse lights on (note earlier pics where I masked these off. No tint):
