yeah i bought the candy apple at hobby town, but all the DIYs said to do the inside. i didnt feel like going through all that trouble. the krylon is meant to stand up to direct sunlight, and the clear just helps protect it more. took only about 2hrs from start, to drying, to re-installing.man i been all up and down the block trying to find some candy apple transparent, i finally gave up. i wasnt aware that krylon made this paint. SCHWEEEET. i still cant get the damn light open to do it on the inside. out sides here i come. That looks really good!
i would say i used about 8-9 passes for each light, and 2-3 of clear.Lookin good!
How many coats of read and clear?
just cleaned them with simple green and started to spray, no fish eye or bubbling.did you sand it down first? or just straight spray over?
it could get scratched, but im going back over them next weekend with some true automotive clear when i paint a friends bumper for him. i didnt have any today and im pretty impatient haha.maybe spray the inside for those that want to do this. Finish could get scratched, but not if the inside is painted. Think about that. But yeah, all red tails are the way to go.
Most people just bake them in the oven to get the glue loosend up, there is a huge write up on scion life.Consider this at your own discression. One of the guys in my DSM club was able to paint the inside of his side markers with black paint. All he did was dip his lights in hot/boiling water for a little bit and that softened the glue attaching everything together. I'm not sure if this would even remotely work on the xB tail lights, but hey, worth a mention I guess.
(just incase sigs are needed here)
