Lemme know what you guys think with out the bra on this time! Cleaned up the front end a bit couldn't cover up all of the scratches but touch up had a big part in it. Took off the bumper and pushed out the dent that was in the bottom passenger side it looks okay bumper looks better at a distance than up close if ya know what I mean. I still think it looks better with the bra on cause it hides up all the blemishes till I can purchase a new bumper and get it painted.
I agree with leaving the bra off. Car looks good. Man those tails look really dark! Also do the headlight covers cut the amount of light that comes through, cause for the longest time I wanted to find some tinted covers but didn't want to be blind at night.
I think I'll leave the "bra" off let the front end breath again Do what you wan't with that i'll leave it open for jokes cause im feeling good right now.
Edit: Oh thats right, to answere the tails are dark BUT the lights themselves are not as dark as the rest of the panel. <--- If that makes sence? The lights are visable in the day time so thats all that matters to me.
And the tint on my headlights aren't covers. One coat of VHT and Six coats of Krylon Fusion. Out of 100% stock light output with the tint it''s down to i'd say 90% output... But now that I have HID's the tint dosen't make a damn difference anymore.

Those aren't covers. He has paint sprayed directly on the lights. PM user FLIP if you are interested or you could go the VHT route (not recommended).
If you take your time and not rush anything sand really good for prep sand between every coat of paint and clear and tape off areas as you so choose VHT actually dosent turn out so bad... there are some decent jobs with VHT. it's just when they are done bad they are really bad
