Hope your good with Spray Bomb Merlin.. I want to see pics when you're done

I was going to suggest gettin some window tint and doing it that way.. so you don't have to worry about certain parts of your light being darker ( from thicker coat of paint in certain areas )..

Waiting for warm & dry weather right now.....

Monday - Wednesday was great up here... 9c to 14c everyday.. so I took the 91 out of storage on Wednesday.

Thursday - now has been like 2c and rain... :(
I was hoping for some nice weather this weekend... but it looks like rain/snow with a high of -2c ... man... Nova Scotia weather sucks!

Nevermind... I found the push retainters on the side of the lights....
I had to break one off to figure out how they work...

I painted them last night... gave em two coats of Nite Shades VHT.... and after 1hr dry time gave them 1 coat of Krylon Satiin Finish.

Going to check on them today to see how they look. Will probably do one more Satin Coat.
