Tail Light Tint!

So I did the black housing turn signals, now I did the tail light tint.
I bought the ebay film tint, and it was worth the 10$ I spent. Its not perfect. But for 10$ it looks damn good.

Oh yeah and can anyone tell what else I added?

BEFORE:





AFTER:





Also I can offer a helpful hint to anyone who installed these or plans to, I noticed that if you don't do an absolute perfect job getting all the air bubbles out they start peeling up when driving. Easy way to solve this problem is to take some clear nail polish and go around the edge of the tint and tail to seal up the edge. Works perfect =)


My next mod will either be Megan Racing Cat-Back or DEPO Black Housing Headlights and maybe a 6k hid conversion kit.

Awesome tip!! Mine is peeling around the edges a little bit too. I'm definitely going to try this out!

Oh, and for the DOT lettering, it looks like its bubbling a little bit. What you can do is take a hairdryer, and heat up that area and press it down real well, and it'll adhere to that section without the little bubbles.


Depo Black Housed Headlights = 227 shipped

Thanks for the tip man. I will try it when we dont have 40 mph winds and rain. Kansas sucks!
