Looking very nice Shauny boy only side repeaters to go, looks like good job on the wax too so

and yeh the bootlights is a great and cheap diy, easy as pie mate!! that said, yours dont look half bad anyway so should come up nicer then mine, be careful try not rub off that inner silver paint tho buddy!! Good stuff tho mate, keep it up!!

nope, dunt sound good tho Jimbow, any DIY tinting cant be easy, a damn site cheaper but guarentee it will at least be bubbled / cresed in some part. Guess its worth a go if not too much s tho??
