I like what you've done to the car, it looks really fresh!

I have to ask though, them taillights; did you convert them to red signals and if so, how with the orange?

Edit - just read, red candy paint! Not really up my street in terms of DIY, but it's good to know. Any vehicle I've owned I've wanted to convert amber to red as it looks much cleaner.
