I will be ordering an entire roll of it as soon as all deposits are received. For those on the list, please call the shop (201-666-3500) to leave your deposit via CC. I'm expecting the roll to be here 7-10 days after its ordered and all trims to be done asap.

Thanks again for the support guys!
Sal, what's the issue with CL trim...? It looked way better than DiNoc.

Now that k think about it. Not sure if I want to black out now. I can't picture it. Afraid it might look too ricey on Montego blue. Anyone got pics for me to decide?

You can't really go wrong. The 'reverse blackout' looks a bit cleaner IMO but neither blackout nor reverse blackout are ricey at all IMO.

Sal, have any pics of your blackout?

I believe the pics below are of the 'reverse blackout'. This is ultimately what I would want mine to look like, don't want the corners too dark..

The corners in this pic look like they were photoshopped? Is this true?

Not really sure about the 2 pics posted of the OSS lights, but the blackout is like the white car but instead of white shrouds they'd be black.

Hope that helps guys!


As for montego......blackout will look sick! We could even paint your shrouds Montego blue...

I just thought something looked off in the pic of Bart's car, if you look closely the blackout on the corners don't match up correctly...looks like it was edited or something? And it's a matte black correct?

Also since I got you here. I plan on driving there and getting to ACM first thing in the morning. Doing the blackout is still possible for the same day right? I won't have any downtime?
