Blacked out side markers

Local shop, they came picked them up, painted them, and dropped them off, for $20 can't beat that haha. I'm assuming they used some sort of tint spray. But the difference is they know what they're doing and I dont.

Just put them on today. I havent tested them out at night yet. I will tell you tonight. I have led's in there right now, from when it was clear, because I didn't want the amber to show. So the light output right now will probably be really bad. I am going to put the OEM Yellows back in when I get home and test it out then. It will probably be brighter then led.

I'm still at work so I havent had a chnace to compare to the OEM bulbs, but i just walked outside and unlocked my car. With the black paint the LED's are actually brighter. Because they reflect off the paint, it gets rid of a lot of the "directional-ness" of the LED. I may leave the LED's in. Who knows?

Thanks. I like it too. The only things I'm missing are Vorstiener hood and euro headlights.
