    Where at in the bay are you? We are trying to put together a board meting on the 28th of this month here in Sacramento. If you can make it up you are welcome to come up.
    As for all red I like the amber turn. It sets you apart from all the other trucks out there.
    Members come and members go, But the board keeps track of them.

    did a 90's Saturn's tail lights all red a few years ago.Real easy to do, mask off the reverse lens and use a gray scotch bright pad. clean the lens then spray a couple coats of Testers Clear red over them. let them sit a few hours then use a automotive clear over that.

    they make vht nightshades in red now as well. May be a bit easier to find than the translucent model paint. I had a hell of a time finding it to do my isuzu tails. Figures i'd have already done it when they came out with the red shade/.
