And no, no issues from local PD with the tail tint.

Anyone use the tint overlays for the tails? Have pics? Something likethis... What do you think? I don't want them super dark, but the bright red stock isn't good either.

Is there a spray that requires little prep and doesn't ruin the stock tail light if you remove tint?

tac cloth
nightshade spray and some clear coat

^^^^^^^^^ VHT Nightshade and clear coat... Best spray on you can buy, and relatively cheap. To remove is sort of a pain, involves a series of sand paper from 800-2000 grit and rubbing compound. Best to spray it on how you want it and leave it... If your afraid of it being to dark you could always do a pattern around the main areas of light like what I did.............
