Looks good! I've been trying to find black H emblems and letters. Where did you buy them or did you plasti dip them?
Thanks! Yes, I used the plasti dip. First time using it and it was very easy. Learned from a Youtube video. Good thing is you can go back to silver if you want. I did the H emblem too so I'll post another pic of it. Good luck!

I'm not sure if he used these or not, but I got mine from
Use BoostedWhipz for a discount code. <- Some Youtube guy.

I went with the 20% and in my opinion / for my case, I think I should have done 50% instead to achieve a less obvious appearance. But, they are easy to redo and pretty inexpensive.

I also went 20% on the reflectors at the bottom and it wasn't as much as I'd hoped in that area. (I actually don't want the reflectors at all for my purposes.)

Wow thank you! This is exactly the route I'd want to to over "painting" it with "smoke" paint of some sort.

Although it was easy, do they last through car washes or any peels?

Edit: So your tails are 20% in that pic? So they're too dark for your liking? And wanted to go even darker for your reflectors? I think they look great BTW

I've only had mine on for a week or so. I did wash the car with a power sprayer without issue. :) From what I hear, they are pretty resilient.

Yes, I bought matching taillight and reflector tints of 20%. For the look I'm wanting, I would have been better off with 50% for the taillights as I suspect it would blend in more with my paint color.

I want the reflectors blacked out entirely I think. I haven't driven behind my car to see how it all looks yet. :)
I might black out the entire chrome strip on the lower body and the reflectors at the same time.
