    Tinting N15 Indicators to replicate Autech ones.

    Has anyone here ever tinted/wrapped the indicator to make it flat orange like the autech ones?

    If so what wrap did you use and must the globes be changed after?

    Mmm.. Tamiya.

    Is there anything else I need to do with this stuff, sanding or anything? Or do I just spray the **** on?

    Also should I remove the orange from the inside then spray?

    i have not done this, but thats what a few guys use. just make sure there clean before you start. as far as the bulbs go, so long as they glow yellow/orange, not red, you are good to go.

    That appears to be a solid paint, I'd have thought you'd need a transparent paint?
