The lights just looked like stock 06+ tails and Brad's looked darker but you explained why I was confused.

yeah. ever since i've got them they've kinda been hit or miss in the sun. Some times they look dark, and other times it's nothing. When it's not too bright out you can tell they're niteshaded. but i think when the sun's beating down on it, they look normal. I still like them. 06's are so much cleaner looking.

scarlet and gray might look pretty sweet...

but actually, on a DSG truck like yours, it might look pretty cool.

You are correct sir,

I got four of the 5 3/4" ovals recently, but 2 are in pretty bad shape, Falco51 got the first good one & Clinton has the other good one heading out his way. Those things were a PAIN to get apart, the Ford oval plastic on that size is twice as thick as the smaller ovals. I bent several of my tools trying to get them apart. But it was worth it to see how they turned out.

There's a REALLY good chance I'll be getting some more of the larger ovals pretty soon (fingers crossed).

I've got a couple ovals that are a whopping 7" wide overall right now, but nobody seems to need that size now.

Sorry, didn't mean to jack the thread Falco51...
The race is on to see who gets their big oval first, you or Clinton.

I managed to paint my gel type emblem, but its a little different process. Basically I got it down to just the chrome (took off all the gel and blue paint). From there, I taped off the lettering and the base, used a rattle can and some clear to looks and removed the tape. What I'm left with is a black painted emblem with raised chrome letters. It looks pretty good, you can't really tell that its got raised chrome letters unless you get up close (you also can't tell I don't have fine motor skills until you get that close...)

Yeah, they are really odd. If you have an indirect angle of light, they look darker, but a direct angle of light makes them look stock.
The only reason why I did that to them was because when they were stock, the color wasn't really even red to me, it was more of like a red-orange and I just wanted to darken them up a bit. But hell, I've got so many compliments on them it's insane, lol.
Glad you like them Chad, your truck's looking awesome!

I messed around with a gel type 5 3/4" oval the other day...
When you get the gel out, you're left with all chrome. You have to mask off the Ford script & oval & paint everything, then unmask & hope it comes out OK.
It came out OK, but I don't have the epoxy to refill the "gel" area, but the raised sections look pretty cool. I guess several coats of clear over the top of everything would be work to protect the paint.

I've got several of those 5 3/4" wide gel ovals, but most of them don't have the long mounting posts on the back side... they'd have to be double sided taped on to the grille.

Do you have a close-up pic of them?

I have a 9" oval that I just got that I haven't had time to work on yet, but it's a solid one piece... it will require some advanced techniques to re-paint.
