G6 Coupe Tail Lights

I like the look of the tinted tail lights that have a matte black finnish with a clear area around the reverse light. Is this simple tint or are they completely separate tail lights? If it is tint how do you go about tinting them? (never tinted lights before)

those are the altezza tails they're nice looking i might look for a set soon and add my own little touch

and if you just want to tint your tails pick up some vht niteshades, clear coat, 1500 grit wet sandpaper and polishing compound.

do as many coats as to how dark you want your lights remember it darkens as it cures otherwise you'll end up with tails to dark like mine lol. this is when i was stripping them back to stock

then after you've done that and given it a few hours of curing time hit it with i'd say 3 to 4 coats of clear.

give that time to cure then wet sand them till it looks an even like dull back that means there's no imperfections in it.

then use the buffing compound till they're nice and glossy

then last step wax them and you will have nice tinted tails

hope this helps you
