Default Few things Ive done so far (5 Pics)

Been messing around with my car lately doing what I possibly can given my very little amount of stuff I can do at the moment, just figured Id add my pics too.

With the Neon turned on, always comes out blurry (can you believe I bought that thing brand new for a single dollar?)

Looks good. The speaker in the back looks like it could use some finishing up, but the deck looks great

did you acually tint the tails with something or is it just covers.

if you did it with somthing then what with.

other than that all looks good once you get somthing over the gapping holes around the 6x9s

He Probably Tinted with VHT NiteShade as no one makes covers for the rear tails that I know of.

Looks great!
How many coats did you put on?

About 4 or 5 coats and yet I still have enough left in the can for another set of tail lights prolly

Oh and btw there is some smoke tints online somewhere that I did see but they were $150 so I went with the cheaper and better looking VHT

It currently doesnt have a clear coat yet for that added protection and gloss look but When I find some more time and ambition I will be doing that so right now its just the tint.

Thanks

The pic of the speakers is about a month old, that was the first thing I did to the car. Everything else was taken within the last 2 days

looking good

btw, if you did get taillight covers, that would a really bad idea, remember how part of the taillights are on the body, and the other part is on the trunk lid, well I'll just say have fun opening and closing your trunk.
