I was wondering wether to remove both rear badges and fillin em in and painting the whole panel black aswell as blacking out my tail lights...
now is this just an act of stupidity and waste of my time or should i just leave it as it is...
or would it just look too bare...

**photoshoped pic in gallery**

let me know what ya think :?:

A guy at work has a VN Calais whaich he has done the exact thing your talking about doing. Apart from the fact its a holden, it does look very good.
But im not so sure about the same effect on your car. Id colour code the middle part and leave the lights stock... or just a small amount of night shade to give it a bit of effect???

I added another pic of how that would look...not too bad but i'm not so sure of the colour coded, looks like gap tooth or something duno but do think that the lites should have a very mild tinting...
