Default IPCW LED Smoke Tail Lights w/ trim

Put the IPCW's in yesterday - as some of you warned there was a small gap around the tail lights... So went to Advanced today and purchased some edge trim, cut peices to go around tail lights and had to trim about 3/16" off the inside of the trim to make it fit more snug around the bottom of the tail lights then with the help of my partner in customizing crime (Andy has much more steady hands then I do) super glued the edges together at the bottom of the tail light so the seam would stay closed... I think they turned out pretty nice if I say so myself...

XtrmDC2, if you click on each of his pictures they do get a little bigger.


When I had those, I carefully painted black all around the edges of the hole where the lights fit into so the "gap" wouldn't look so bad.

Here's a big one of the passengers side - the sunset was hitting drivers side and the glare in the pics was too bad.

Actually I didn't really hit any traffic. Just a long drive, about 220 miles each way.

You forgot to the pic in your last post
