actually, i didnt spray the lens with anything... the lens is perfectly clean ;)

as for the rocker cover fins, just run fine sandpaper over it if you want a alloy look... thats what i did.. spraying it is another matter

attatched is a pic of everything i sprayed (sorry didnt have any 'in progress'
pics. and this is obviously before i sprayed the indicators, in which, all i did was mask up the middle of the lens, spray around the edges of the front lens, so it'll be darker than the rest, then unmask, and spray a few light coats over the whole lens

ahh thats what the difference is. i didnt spray the inside of the lense. didnt bother masking anything either, it was a last minute thing when i pulled the glass off to let the water out lol.

haha, i only get water in one indicator, rather annoying though...
yeah just along the inside edges of the glass, it gives it a bit more of an even darkness through it... good luck if you're going to have a crack at it

i know its a bit of carnage... but i cut out the intire roof of the indicator lense...so i could get a paint brush dipped in black paint into the indicator without trying to pry off the indicator lense as its just about impossible without cracking the indicator lense..n i sticky taped an ear bud to the end of a long screw drivern wet the end of the bud in black paint so i could get the black paint in hard to reach corners of the indicator without mucking up the inside of the lense... the brush was a bit too large aswell so the ear bud trick was handy...
