Default Wrapped my pre-LP taillights. Poll: Dope or Nope?

My attempted $30 tail light "mod" and I'm just not sure I love it. (Also my first attempt at a wrap) I have seen other cars do it, but maybe the color match was easier. The "grigio telesto" wrap isn't quite a perfect match. Like it or hate it? Vote above!

I'll give it a week, but I'm leaning towards removing it due to the color difference.

Default taillamps pre LP

Not a bad attempt, just need to match the paint a little better. I have about 10 sets of these in stock for about half the price if you want to practice some more.

Can you get a closer colour? It looks like you have done a good job on the wrapping.

Well I ordered "grigio telesto" vinyl wrap, but apparently it's not quite there. Knowing nothing about wraps, I'm not sure what to look for.

Interesting idea, but unfortunately it doesn’t really look right to me. The colour match doesn’t help. Maybe black to go with the grill would have worked better? Is the wing black too?

What about using tint film somehow? Perhaps tint the top darker, with a more subtle tint on the rear face? But still embracing the mk1 style lights.

Not normally a fan of tints, but those side markers look real nice!

Maybe try the carbon fibre or black as others have mate. No harm in trying these things.
