MAKE my REAR tail lights CLEAR please

Can someone please make these taillights clear, and with the red and orange bulbs underneath showing slightly. If ya cant do the bulbs dont worry.

I recon it might be hard to do but some of you guys are amazing at this stuff so I thought Id ask anyway.

Oh and while your there can you pleae make the car a dark gunmetal grey. If not just the clear lights would be more than enough.

I just found a place that will be making them soon so I want to see if they look alright or are too ricer oriented.

thanks

Re: MAKE my REAR tail lights CLEAR please

Thanks mate it gives me a bit of an idea. The grey is good, but I'd go a fair bit darker. That last one, my god I love it, I am taking it straight to the body kit shop tomorow for a replica!

But seriously its still cool to see way out stuff like that on ya car, so thanks.

Anyone else for a go?

Darker gunmetal anyone?

Or a maroony brown type colour would be great!

thanks

Ok, I've made the grey a little darker.

I think (personal opinion here) if you are going to respray the car a dark grey leave the tail lights standard or darker, not clear.

Clear is nice on a black car or a light coloured one.

Yep, I think your right. The semi transparent clear doesnt look that good. I recon if the lenses were a truer clear, a bit more like glass, with the back of the light surrounds polished up it might look good.
