Color matched tail lights.

Has anyone here color matched there taillights to match there truck. I have seen it on a few and I love the way it looks. I did a search and found nothing on them. I would like to know what kind of paint to use, and where I could get it. Any info would be appreciated.

a good automotive factory color match paint will work, but you will need to prep plastic with a plastic primer (usually clear) to get the automotive paint to adhere correctly.

i have used these in the past (blackout tail lights) and worked very well!

Adhesion Promoter

Basecoat Color

And dont forget the Clearcoat


Good idea, be sure to take pics!

Usually LED lights are used since they are brighter than stock too. Good luck!

Sweet thanks guys. Would the stock lights be bright enough though? I dont really have the money to get the LED tails yet.

As long as you dont go to dark they should be ok. Might be an issue in the day time.
