    yet more work carried out today, rear lights tinted, I tint them by a process of using standard car lacquer (10 parts) and mixing with standard black (1 part) and then applying thin coats till the desired affect is reached, good thing about doing it this way is its very translucent and very high gloss:

    Masked, flated and ready paint:

    In booth, one coat applied:

    5 coats have been applied to reach the effect i liked:

    Second modification:

    Since fitting the Votex kit i could help feeling the exhaust tips looked lost in the cut outs so i ordered a couple of new tip of ebay and the arrived today.

    4 inch in rolled:

    one last pic of the little pea shooters:

    New ones welded on:

    While I had the 9 inch cutter on the go I got a bit carried away and lopped this out (the middle box) and welded in straight pipes and still running the pair of standard back boxes, makes the note a little deeper.....Perfect.

    There spot on,

    I have none with the lights on but this shows how the reflector still works fine picking up off the LED light on my phone camera

    Thanks,

    There definitely bright enough, in the pic the flash went off on the camera and even with the flash lighting up the back of the car they still remain bright.
