Talking Photos: Custom Tail'*, Custom Exhaust, Custom Emblems

Well it is about time I get the car cleaned up and take it out for some pictures!

Some of the newest things I have done to the car:

-Painted - Blacked out Tail light/Rear section (New service I am now offering with my business and had to experiment with paint formulas, number of coats, etc... so used my car as guinea pig.. essentially the same as tinting, but permanent and MUCH better looking) I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but once it was done I LOVED it and that'* when the mod bug bit me and I began doing more things haha.

-Thrush Turbo Mufflers and 3" dual stainless tips

-Black Chrome 'SLE' Emblems: Stripped gold from "SLE" emblems to make them stainless/chrome appearance, then coated with same formula as tail'* to give a black chrome look. (hard to tell in photos, but in person you can tell they are not just "black")

Sorry it isn't a very scenic photoshoot, the sun was going down so I just tried to snap a few pictures quick. I have a few more things I am planning to do (New darker window Tint, might be Black Chroming the wheels or at least the inside of the spokes and leave the outside the way they are, Halo Fog'* etc.. ) and after they are done I will try to get a decent photo session with the car so you can all enjoy.

Comments / questions are always welcome!

Thanks guys! I take pride in my work and in my car

And just so you guys can see what the tails looked like before I did them:

And this is after One coat of the formula I decided to use. The end result you see in the photos above is 3 or 4 coats. I would have to check my notes to be sure.
