Sweet mod Bro, kinda like the ones I did but mine were tinted red down to the backup lamp area with chrome dividing the sections. Have you had any stripe lifting problems. My striping did not like contours and wouldn' stay
down. On a 1-10 scale looks like a solid 9 Happy Modding!

i used a decal chrome used for large pinstripes etc. on boats and rv's; then i prepped the surface like i was doing window tint (w/soapy water solution)...rinse w/cold, then warm water, and i got perfect placement

i think those look great especially since you did them on your own. im not a huge fan of chrome but i think you did something good with that. i still love the TYC lights though. :bow:

You prolly like most of us, mod stockers while waiting for funds to get either TYCs or JDMs. My JDMs were def. worth the wait.
I like em. Classy and subtle. Sort of the opposite of those damn altezzas you see on every Civic between here and Miami.

Although I have never met anyone who would publicly brag about painting their taillights--I guess there is a first time for everything.
Anyhow, my buddy has had that setup for about a year now, except he just got the bat overlays and cut them accordingly. No riced out faded pink effect in 6 months either...and they were ~15 bux.

i usually wouldnt even think of placing chrome on the lights, but you did a good job with it, looks good.
