    ah ye it was really cold when i did them, my brother has done his on his saxo n they came out perfectly, i think it could be dust that was attracted to it :/ so il see if the laquer helps them have a bit of a shine il probs T-cut them first

    i had some time on my hands today so decided to give the car a good clean and tackle my rear lights, as seen in the photos above i sprayed them and the finish was s*** and they were rough to touch. i gave them a good going over with T-cut and this was how they came up, only the left one had been done at this stage


    im also getting my windows tinted tomorrow so il upload a picture of those as well

    Had an absolute nightmare, just popped down to the petrol station to fill up looked at my newly t-cutted lights only to fined out that they have sort of White layer on them tried to scrub it off but it disappears when wet but goes White again when it dries, anyone got any suggestions on how to get rid of this ? Cheers

    Do you think the T-cut has reacted with the tint spray to form some kind of crappy residue?

    Im 17.. Hit me up with some insurance!

    I think that you should just get some Smoked lexus lights from cituning, about 80 odd pound but still look good.

    All black look, is very nice and also what im planning to do to my furio. (Have a black one)


    I dont personally have one but I hear alot of good things about the GSR induction kit, Sounds like one you should consider.



    Looking real good!

    Ye I was on cituning last night looking at lights etc but they seem to have the same picture for every product in the category ? Anyway I got my tints done today and I love them I also spent 3 hours removing all the tint paint from my lights, so now they're back to standard I've got a pic that il upload in a few mins.
    Ye i've been looking through the air filter guide on hear and the gsr seems to have the best results for everyone, so il probs look at one of those when I find some money, which could be a while !
    Got a bit of an idea for a colour scheme and am currently looking in to getting a vinyl rap designed il update when I have some news on that

    Looks hot!

    Yeah I noticed that, bit annoying, theyd get more sales if we actually knew what we were buying haa, alot of people on the forum have the smoked lexus lights, so if you considered it best check some progress threads, sure you have tho!

    Lookin forward to more updates dude

    Right so when they tinted my lights they've taken the spoiler off for when I rekon if try tried they could have done it with out, but now it's rattling and sliding up and down, the bolts holding it on are very tight, what do I have to do to refit it properly ? Any tips will help, it's doing my head in
