    those are pretty bad lookin man. get some pictures of them at night or with the lights on so we can see them like that too. they look great.

    thanks guys, and yea they are a TAD bit too dark for my taste. I have done a customers tails on his axiom so dark that during the day they look like a body panel, and at night you can see the ligt fine, the good part about my method, is you can stop layering at any time, if you think they are dark enough stop, let em dry put em on, if you dont like em scuff them up a bit and hit em again.

    Bill, judging by your work you will have no problem, make sure you take your time prep well, and use wax and grease remover, take your time and you will reap the benifits. Mine are no where near perfect but i was loosing daylight when i did this...someone requested night pics? its dusk and the sun is down, there is a little bit of shudder open about1/2 a second.
