Tail lights and tint....

So I've been thinking of balcking out my tail lights. Now idk about blacking all the tail light out or just the clear part. Help!! What do you guys think looks better? All blacked out? Clear part blacked out or keep it clean and no tint?

Re: Tail lights and tint....

i think you actually only tint the red part.and leave the white and turnsignal clear.that justs my opinion of course. i.ve seen it on a blcak lude before and it looked sick.if i stumble accros the picture i will post it or give ya a link.

The red part is tinted on mine without the clear done. I think it looks sexy that way!

Just a rough shop...

Me personally I don't like the upper part being tinted..I do like the bottom half though...Not too sure how I feel about the all read...itd be interesting to say the least.

Re: Tail lights and tint....

Of course, just go with the same thing thats been done a thousand times. jk man, do what you want. i might get bored one day and try the red idea on my extra set of OEM's.

Re: Tail lights and tint....

I think if my car wasn't black I would go with all red or leave as is. But since it's black the black tint matches it and blends in really well.

Personally I don't care for the red part being tinted. On a black car I'd either tint the white part or leave it OEM.

Re: Tail lights and tint....



Hi.. vht niteshade, quite a few coats to be real honest, i had to keep going because i couldnt get it evenly between the lights, its super dark but the turn signals still flash bright ass amber and the reverse lights are clearly visible.
