Default First Ever! Custom Blacked Out LCI Taillights by Republic Wraps

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to share with you a little project ive been working on the past few days in the shop. It all started when I noticed that my car was really red, but so were my taillights but a different shade of red. So many people kept suggesting to me that i tint my tails. I really dont care for that look...in addition it means that you will subdue the brightness of the LED bars inside the LCI tails (arguably the coolest part about them). So i always balked at their suggestions. However, it got me to thinking, what if you could achieve a blackout, while not only retaining the brightness of the bars but making them pop even more than before???

so i present to you a world's first: Custom LCI Taillights blacked out in addition to some other custom treatments. Note, the lights are off...this is in direct sunlight, look how much they pop! i love it!

(sorry no DIY fellas but if you really want it done shoot me a PM for pricing or put your thinking caps on and devise an approach of your own, it was a fun project to engineer)


Original OEM LCI tails on the left, custom LCI tails by Republic Wraps on the right....
