Default Re: My Custom LED Modded 3rd Brake Lights (KY)

It spider-webbed & started separating from itself.
Once I started scraping it off, you could see where it started melting the plastic. Took me forever to get it sanded back flat & smooth.

Only time I've seen something like this is when I painted good paint over cheap paint & it cracked & peeled.
Maybe I should have sanded the 3rdBL a little? It was as smooth as glass when I sprayed it.

I had it wet sanded down to 2000 grit & buffed to a high shine finish. Probably didn't help.
Normally when I paint plastic, I'll wet sand it to about 600 - 800 grit to leave a little "tooth" for the paint.

BuMp

I've had a ton of interest, but nobody has taken the plunge yet.

22 more days 'till X-mas & I need to buy presents!

Buggman....I will be shoveling my 94 ranger out in march and was wondering if one of these fits?
Also, i was reading the trouble you had with niteshades. Have you tried the taillight and headlight film?
I have some on my taillights and it went on easy with some light cleaning and a blowdryer.

I believe your 94 should have the same 3rd brake light, seems like the style changed in 90 or 92 from the smaller lights. I'm sure someone with a Ranger from that era will chime in & let us know for sure. If you can get a pic of your 3rdBL, we should be able to tell easier.

I haven't heard of the film, does it apply similar to window tint? I was just trying it on a 3rdBL for the guys who want a nightshaded & led'ed 3rdBL.

Yeah it applies the same way and looks amazing....wayyyyy better than nightshades. Comes in alot of different shades and colors......you could wire them for turn signals and make the clear part orange or red with this film.
