    Converting '11 Red Sedan to Specal Edition Cosmetics

    Hey rexxers.

    So I've been working on converting my red sedan to look like the tangerine special edition just because I think it looks pretty damn sick. I get that some people aren't into the whole side trim stripes, but I'm coming as a previous mustang owner and just always have been attracted to them :-).
    I haven't been able to find any pictures anywhere of red sedans with cosmetic edits, so heres my attempt to help out ^_^
    Enjoy:

    smoked out the reverse and turn signals. Also plastidipped the rear chrome strip. I'll have to redo this, as my coating isnt as clean as it could be.

    If you end up going with the side stripes, deffenitly consider blacking out the fender badge. With this being chrome it looks completely out of place.

    So yeah. My goal is to convert any chrome to black, and add that SE stripe on the bottom. Still a work in progress :-)

    Like it so far! I wouldn't do the stripe on my car, but I can't say I don't like the way it looks.

    I am liking this! Where did you get the stripes?
    Is this a dealer item? I bought gm pinstripes in the past at the dealer.
