Re: trafic fake windows

My citroen ax van ,which I purchased that way solely to avoid tax,I had the rear window panels painted gloss black.It wasnt totally successfull,but did make it look more carlike.

paint the panels grey maybe and then get sheets of the semi transparent headlamp tint vinyl in a "smoke" colour and cover the light grey with that? or perhaps window tinting sheets,but I doubt theyed be durable enough for exterior application.
Its the shiny surface you need really.

You know the way some van owners cover the rear windows from the inside with reflective mirror film>?,
You can get sheets of chrome effect vinyl for exterior use,Ive used it myself(see under the headlamps in my sig pic).
That might be an option too.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
