You do know you can purchase those in black and not have to paint them...................

I personally think it will "hooptie" out your car.
Don't do it.

I don't like it. That makes the taillights look too big -- like on that little Oldsmobile. (Alero? or something) Keep the bezels red, and if you want the blackout effect, just tint the lenses.

But that's just my opinion... If you like it do it.

I never did like that tailight thing. But, I am a fan of the blacked out part on the bottom of the bumper. I got mine painted like that. :smoke:

I like it. I have always been a fan of that "saleen" look. I did it to my car now but its blue. I think it looks sweet esp on the red cars, ESP if u got the saleen rear bumper and spoiler it would look sweeter!

Honestly, i personally dont like the euro or altezza taillights in any mustang at all. Those black bezels look good, better with stock lights Otherwise i like the rest of the car. Very clean!
