Front & Side Turn Signals
 
Does anybody know if a set of smoked turn signals for the front and side markers that are for 2007-2012 will fit on a 2013 ??

Thanks,
Brian

I'd say most likely the design of them hasn't changed (I think) and some people probably havn't updated their product compatability yet.

Why not just buy a can of Nite Shades and smoke yours out?

I've seen some for sale on the internet by a company called Depo, has anybody ever heard of them?

when i was in the market for them i only found them on ebay and they wanted 200$ for just the lenses so i used the VHT nite shades (15$ at autozone) and i couldnt be happy with the results. it only took 30 mins to do em all

Marcel-
That looks pretty nice, did you also do the back ones & if so do you have any pictures of them? Also, were you able to use the factory bulbs?

How many coats did you put on the front ones?

3 or 4 very very very light coats. lay em flat and spray from above at a good distance kinda like letting the over spray fall on them

Last question, originally I was thinking about painting them on the inside but now that I think about it you probably sprayed the outside correct? If thats the case do you have any problems with the shading getting scratched ??

MarcelOrtiz 04-06-2013 01:07 AM

Yes the outside, they still look as they did the 1st day
