Trimmed tail lights on 2014 LTZ

All,

The tail lights needed some improvement on my 2014 LTZ. I liked the way the newer Traverse tails looked so I decided to try it myself. I taped off the look I wanted and sprayed 4 coats of black Plastidip and 2 coats of clear. I think it came out really nice. Definitely a nice improvement.

Looks good! Another member did the same thing using black vinyl (I think). I think this looks a little better.

I like that! Great work. I saw another member with chrome trim around their taillights, but I think I like this a bit more!

How do you think this would look on a black car? Seems like it wouldn't stand out very well. But hopefully I'm wrong.

While I agree with you that it may not stand out as well. I still think it would look great!

That does look very nice. That is the one part of this car that is ugly, is the tail lights. I have the same car but 2016 and can't believe they don't have LED taillights! This really breaks it up. Like it..
