Has anyone got a response for ECS on this? Their customer service seems to be crap. If I don't hear back from them with by Friday. I'll just have Amex do a chargeback and they can pay the fine that Amex will charge them.
I'm sick of crappy businesses that don't want to earn their freaking money and sell crap products.
I was going to order a lot more stuff with the side markers but something told me to see what the experience with the side markers is like. Getting hung up on when I call and no reply to emails...I'm surprised they've been in business as long as they have. Time to complain to the BBB too.

I ordered a set of tinted sidemarkers for my Golf from ECS, and the fit was so bad that they didn't even hardly stay in. If I pushed on the side they would pop out. They lasted about 1 minute before I took them out, threw them in the trash, cursed aftermarket parts, and again remembered why I decided to go with painted OEM sidemarkers. Wasn't even worth the hassle to me to return them, lesson learned...
Primer it then paint...you just need a dust free environment to really do it right.
(other colors available)
Start by holding the can about 8"-12" away. Start spraying away from the marker and spray across the entire marker and move off the other edge before stop spraying. I.E. start and stop the spray not directly on the marker. Use slow even movements across the entire marker at the same distance. Do at least 2 or 3 coats. Probably 4 or 5. Let dry THOROUGHLY before applying another coat. Also a couple of coats of clear coat is a MUST.
Will it look professional? Maybe...its all about even coats, good ventilation and no dust.
My big question is...is a painted marker legal?
