Default Tail light idea...

I purchased some of the roll on sticky back pinstriping they have at automotive stores/fleet farm, for my old car two years ago, and i have quite a bit left over. Do you guys think it would look good/bad if i just used that to make my Tails "SSE/i" style? Or would full blackout spray on be better?

Black em out, because the SSE/i taillight stripes are inside the glass.

That outside tape won't last unless you clearcoat them in.

Black 'em out! It looks better. Especially if you use 'stealth' tips, too. Changed the whole look of my car.

Definitely black them out, or find some SSE tails on ebay or a junkyard if possible.

Yeah i've talked to zzzzzeke about his when he was over, and i'd do it but funds are tight, and the ADTR intake makes me faster, tail lights don't.
