AE86 Project | How To Repair Cracked Tail Lights - Tail Light Restoration

Added by AutomotiveUploads
4 views
In today’s video, we are back on the ae86 trueno coupe project . However, we are taking a step back from painting and sanding body panel s and are going to focus on another aspect of the ae86 build. Today I am going to go over how to fix cracked tail lights , how to use nightshades , and how to use aerosol clear coat paint.

This method can also be applied to restoring foggy headlights or side markers on most cars. The materials I used for this project, are listed below:

- Sandpaper pack https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XF4QYVP/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 – $13.99 (THIS IS WAY OVERKILL, but I decided I will use the other grits for other projects in the future)

- Gorilla (clear) 5 min. Epoxy – https://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Epoxy-85-oz-Clear/dp/B001Z3C3AG/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1501436966&sr=8-1-fkmr1&keywords=gorilla+5+min++epoxy – $5.47

- “Vivid Orange” paint from Walmart - $0.50

- VHT Nightshades paint – $10.00

- Spray Max 2k aerosol clear (368 0061) – https://www.amazon.com/Spray-High-Gloss-Clearcoat-Aerosol/dp/B0043B7UQY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1501437076&sr=8-1&keywords=spraymax+2k+clear+coat - $18.88

Grand total: $48.40 (cheaper if you get a smaller pack of sandpaper)

Please keep in mind that the Spray Max 2k clear is not your everyday aerosol clear. It is automotive grade and contains both paint and activator. PLEASE USE PROPER VENTILATION AND A HIGH QUALITY MASK WHEN USING THIS PAINT. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. In a future video I will be using this same process to show how to restore headlights on my Evo. I hope you all enjoyed this ae86 video. Feel free to share the video to other locations and help spread the knowledge.
