Default Tail lights

Nothing like a nice set of tail lights on the old bird. Now the fun part begins with turning all those little squares black.

Those look great, Nyles.

I think I will be spending a few cold, snowy Nebraska nights applying stickers.

Using a rattle can does not work as the viscosity causes the paint to migrate to the corners of the squares and leave the centers unpainted. By controlling the viscosity I got excellent coverage.
Hey Carl

How about I send my tail light waffles to you for masking, because there is no way that I can ever do a masking job like that?

I'll paint them...I'm not lazy!!!
