Taillight FILM

I was wondering if anyone new of any good places that will sell blk tint film or the smoke colored wrap for tailights. The thick wrap I heard is way better than using the tint film. If anyone knows any online shops that sell the stuff in bulk or for lude applications. please let me know here.

not to mention if anyone has seen it done on a black 5th gen Lude. I want my car to look as stealth as possible. I lready have limo tint all around and some gun metal rims so, I think that will complete the look.

yeah i've heard of that stuff before, i just used regular window tint on my front bumper lights but the tails were too hard to do that with so my brother got some black transparent vinel for me to do the tailights with, he did the ones on the black lude and it looks pretty good!

There's also tail light tinting spray. I've seen pics before, results looked good.

yeah i forgot about that stuff, my buddy used it on his neon, he said it was kinda tricky to get right, but the end result looked good, it's kinda hard to find though the only place i've ever seen sell it is Parks Auto parts, and i dont know if yall have any of those where yall are, but it's called Nightshade

This previous post is of my 01 Prelude with smoked lights that I do and this is a pic of my del sol with them too. I do smoked lights at Smoked-Lights.com I would advise not getting the film because most people that get lights from me already have had the film and didnt like it for different reasons. It flys off sometimes at high speeds and you have to take them off everytime you wash your car and they get messed up quick like scratched and stuff. What I do is permanent but it lets the light through very nicely and people really have any problems being pulled over because the lights still are bright and the right color. Plus they are really shiney and very durable. Here is a pic of the del sol at night.

Laminex does not "fly off at high speeds" do whatever you like, but I'd rather have scratched film that can be removed than have scratched lenses.

That is just what I have heard from people who have bought from me. Maybe they applied it wrong or something. As for the scratches, my lights dont scratch easily like film. It is just as hard to scratch them as it is to scratch your cars clear coat. They are very durable and dont need to be replaced because they get scratched all the time.

The lights have been on the del sol for about 2 years now. I dont see any scratches on them.
