Finally done.

They came out a bit rich, but it doesn't look bad. I'm quite happy with how they came out.

Thanks, everyone. I just need to sand it down with some 2000-3000 grit or polishing compound. I think I'm going to polishing compound it lightly once it's fully cured (another couple days).

Thanks, Keri.
You helped me out quite a bit in my decisions on redding 'em out. :)

I ended up taping around the edges (where the black shows through) so it came out pretty clean.

red is ugly, its hard to tell when you want to change lane or stopping, .....why don't you stick to yellow?
I don't know what to say if you have trouble figuring out what a solid red light is and a blinking one... although I'm pretty sure it's not very safe that you're on the road.

i like how you left the black edges, looks very clean...as if they came all red like that stock :thumbup:
