The CRX doesn't look good... doesn't match quite right.

The RSX however, great job.

Not a bad idea, although i wonder about the longevity. Nice find. :)

Using the red Testor's paint like many other members have used looks like a better finish.

This isn't that bad though. I personally would have covered the whole light though, for a uniform color.

^ it probably wouldnt be uniform though since you have a red filter on a red filter, then a red filter on a yellow filter. Doesnt look bad though, I am considering taking out the amber on my celicas tail lights and making it all red

Just mask off the red and paint only the orange?

Wet sand it with 2000 grit, and throw a couple coats of clear over it. You match it right, it'll look oem.

I've done it many a time in both red and black.
