Hmmmm, I've been thinking about this subject alot too. Was thinking of paint like Eric did, maybe paint the outside of the lense. I been waiting for the guy with the reflective tape to post some pics. I like the painted one, but maybe paint it on the outsite. Looks good though. :)

Yeah, clear. That paint looked horrid.

Neither ;)

I wonder if its possible to find a white/clear reflector to modify and stick in there. Even just roughened-up acrylic may look decent if done right. These things just look too bare without ANYTHING in the sides.

Something like http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7931251783&category=33708 ? I don't know how big the actual reflectors are but it could potentially work

ok, thats the plan then, i wasnt sure how it'd look so i did it and just stuck it on and even then i wasnt sure how it looked so yeah i let you guys deside. ill finish glueing them back together  tomorrow after school without the white part.

maybe it would look better on a black car with the inside of the flat part of the lens painted black, i was shooting for the same look our tail lights have with the black paint inside parts of the lense. guess it didnt work with white :p

on a 3rd note, anyone know if we can make clear reflectors instead of those amber ones? that would get rid of that whole problem all together  :)
