I have played about on p'shop and have come up with 3 options:

Black and red:

GLI style:

All red:

Opinions?

Also, is it just a case of masking off and lightly spraying paint straight onto the light? Or is there a special tint spray you can get?

Thanks

Cheers URI [Y], will look into the tint spray as it'll probably work out cheaper than getting some mixed.

All red, it turn out the best... and look the most proffesional, and you use light tint, i would probably laquer them aswell ..

Ooh, quite like the black and red option you've shown there, I probably wouldn't blacken them that much, and I'd make the lines wrap all around the lights too, maybe p'chop them like that and see what you think?

I've bought tint spray from Halfords before, it's about the same price as other places, unlike some of their other products.

all reds probably the easiest mate, i recently did mine and came out pretty sweet

just took a razor blade to any of the lettering on the lens, then sanding down the lens starting with 800grit down to 1500grit

3 coats of red tint spray from the bay then a final coat of laquer[Y]
