ok i've done everything the lights are just drying right now only problem I have is my lens seem to have a pink hew to them - is there any fix to this? I'm debating on just sanding them down with 1000 grit and hit um with a light spray of night shades then clear them. Any other suggestions?

Ya there's no way of sanding that pink off, so I like your idea of giving it a light smoke to mask the pink.

Well they turned out a little darker than I had wished but still think they look pretty sweet. I still have to clean up the outer edges the silicone is visible in some spots but my damn fingers hurt. Should of worn gloves.

After doing the above directions I then wet sanded with 1000 grit then hit them with a light coat of night shades tint. Then applied 2 coats of clear then wet sanded again with 2000 grit then 1 more coat of clear. I got a little happy with the dremel in some spots but unless your looking for the marks the 1/4 in paint around the edges does a good job hideing it.
the 1 on the left is prepd for paint the right 1 is just the BTLM done

Thanks Ace.

Yeah , they came that way. They're nitto red lines. I don't really care for the stripe, but it would be cool on a RR.
