When I completed my Spenser's 2015 Ford Mustang GT, I really didn't care for the headlights as they were painted silver from the factory and stood out like a sore thumb. I had read Bob Downie's article in the August 2014 issue of Scale Auto, but I don't have the resources to create the headlights like he did. After a bit of thought, I wanted to try removing the silver paint from the healight lenses and add a picture of the 2015 Mustang headlights behind them. I searched Google Images for "2017 Ford Mustang GT Competition Orange" pictures came up with two that were taken at the same angles by the same photographer. I sized them on Microsoft Word at .75 X .25 and printed them out.
In the process of removing the silver paint, I ended up doing the same thing as Bob Downie did with his headlights, I broke one of them off. I decided to keep them instead of creating my own lenses.
Using Tamiya X-22 Gloss Clear, I coated the inside of the lens and appiled the headlight picture and let that set up for a few minutes before adding a coat of clear to the outside of the lens.
I think they came out pretty good. I'll have to update my Spenser's 2015 Ford Mustang GT with the headlight lenses.
More to come...
