Default Corners

So as most of you know, I painted my corners a sexy DSG the other night and when I went to seal them of course I was in a rush and ended up putting a little too much silicone on one of them. It doesn't really bother me that much but I just want to know what you guys think of it. If it looks that terrible I can easily pop it back open and redo it.






The spot I keep picturing the most is the upper right hand corner. That's really the only place that has too much silicone.

i personally think they look perfectly fine. i would think you would want as much silicone so there is no worry about leakage. Those corners are pretty tits man. But yeah, as it looks, i'd leave em. they look great. props.

Yea that's my problem. I know it's there. Nobody else really notices it but being the person that did it, it's bothersome knowing that imperfection is there.

i think this is probably your best bet.. just put em in, stare at them for a while, run em for a while and then decide. If it doesn't bother you, then you'll be alright.

And if you don't want them, i'm sure you could sell them on here for atleast 30 bucks if not more. Because that's how much i bought my smoked ones off of STL for.

I wouldn't sell them. I'd just pop em back open, clean out all the old silicone and reseal it.

I'd still have to separate them to paint the edges. If I was going to go through all that I might as well redo the silicone.
