Default 2013 Taillight-style on my 2006 Mustang! (Plasti Dip)

You've probably seen me before on a thread with the plasti dipped decklid. I've been very creative again with Plasti Dip and the result was better than i expected!

I taped off my whole taillight with painters tape, made a sketch of what i wanted. Teared it off in 1 piece. Scanned it into photoshop. Made the edge a bit round like the 2013 lights. Printed it. Duplex taped the back of the printed page. Cut out the outter and inner ring with a scissor. Sticked it on the taillight and sprayed 11 layers of Dip on it.

You can do it yourself too! Just save the image of the left taillight, mirror it and print it on original size.

Here it is:

You've got some talent. If I tried that I'd end up needing new taillights. Good job

haha nice! I did this to my left light a few weeks back just playing around. No doubt about it, it is an awesome look at night. Mine looked kind of retarded in the day time though (probably because my car is gloss black next to the flat black dip). MOAR PICS?!

I have seen thread after thread of Plasti-Dip this and Plasti-Dip that.. 100% of my comments have been, more or less, that the person was a retard. So much so I never even cared to know what plasti-dip actually was or where to buy it.

You sir have outdone yourself and found one hell of a nice use for this stuff. Probably easier to buy some vinly and just cut it but hey, NICE JOB!! I want it..lol

Looks really good, only problem I see is that if you covered the reflector (which It looks like you did) then the cops around here could hassle you about that. I like it though, now someone do their '10-'12 that way and post some pics.

I don't imagine it will be long before pre-cut vinyl tints in this pattern are on the market.
