Default painted the tail light trim

i had smoked stock tail lights on and got a ticket for them recently so i went back to stock color and picked up an extra set and painted them this weekend. now i know my flames suck on the front of my car i just never had the time or money to fix it. so other than the obvious, what else can i do. i am ordering the black inserts for the mustang but is that enough or should i do the bottom black as well?. i am giving my daughter my car next year and have a brand new ford oe black bra that i told her i would put on the front of the car. i really am not into bra's but it is black.

It looks good, you have taken good care of the paint otherwise. I didnt really notice the flames until you mentioned it.

I would do the bottom black like you mentioned and maybe, a black spoiler??? I had a BOSS spoiler, years ago on my 98' I had. Looks similar to the Boss 429 spoiler, was really flat....

Looks nice with the red! I have never seen that before on a car of that color, a friends sister did it on her green one and personally I didn't really like it. She also had a bra on her car, when I removed it (from the car... she is a little young for me) to put on a licence plate it was all scratched up under it. After seeing that I will never have one on a car.

thanks, i had a extra spoiler that i planned on painting black and putting it on but i got tired of it sitting in the garage so i got rid of it. i am ordering the black letters today from americanmuscle.com

if i get a free whole weekend and weather is nice i will take the bumper off and paint the bottom. i think the letters alone will look better but definately the black bottom would be nice.

you shouldnt have to take the bumper off to do this, just tape it off real well and then spray it!
