Is that just a blue bulb for turn signal or blue painted yellow bulb?
What kind of paint did you use? Was it plastic friendly since you didn't sand? Clearcoat it?
Looks good, sorry for all the questions but I'm very curious.

Thanks...its a "bright white" bulb. I blinks white with a hint of blue...I used Duplicolor MetalSpecks for the blue, and Duplicolor Textured for the black. Yep, then I hit it with the clear.....no worries on the questions...they help us learn...

Damn I like A LOT. That paint looks pretty amazing on there. I would have assumed it was shot with a spray gun honestly. Are your halos now colormatched?

I did the blue first, long time ago. I taped off the center, scuffed with a scotch bright pad, then hit it with the Metal specks, then clear. For the center, I taped off the blue, hit it with adhesion promotor and then with the black, that stuff is so thick I only needed 2 coats. then hit it with clear...

I'll be changing all the blue to another shade of blue, be on the lookout for it...

Looks good Preston, don't get too carried away though, it can lead to bad things.
