They told me they use an automotive plastic paint with a technique to keep the lights from turning out pink. Turned out great. I believe they also have people ship their stock lights in for painting. PM me if you'd like more info.

Those tail lights look really good! I thought it would look silly with red on red but the ruby tint too it makes a good statement. I've gotta try this now.

Thx guys. I was a little hesitant going red on red but I saw the display ones they had and looked really nice because it's smoked first before the red.
