cool

that is pretty cool but i have a question, if you black out the turn signals how do people know when your turning?


Is it not so dark that light still passes through? Looks good though, but probably only on a BLACK vehicle

I used the VHT Nite-Shades on my front corners, really easy to do and it came out great. All I did was clean them up really good and then sprayed them and it was extremely easy.





For my rears I ordered the AVS smoke out taillight covers. I figured this was if and when a cop decided to be a dick and pull me over and tell me that I couldnt have them covered like that I wouldn't have to buy a new set of taillights...just my $.02 though. Hope this helps.

hey

hey just wondering if you can still see the lights flashing when you turn on the signals?

Also, I think it would have looked better with clear corners on your white XJ...

just my opinion,



my old xj with clear

just my opinion,
Yeah you can see them fine, the can said to put three coats on and I didnt think that was dark enough so I did four and it was fine when they light up its like there not even covered...as for the clears on a white xj..to each their own...I looked at clears but everything on mine is either black or white with the exception of the wheels so I felt it would look good with the black outs and I love...I like clears but I wanted to kinda go a different route that not many people had done.
