Tinting spray

i dont know how you tint the taillights but is there some sort of tinting spray that you spray on it...or is it exactly the same way you tint the windows?

Night shade.....I just used some to trim around the Camaro's back tail lights just last week.
Turned out pretty good but man does it get dark fast. Do very light coats till you get the degree shade that you want.
VHT makes it. This is what the older cans look like. The newer ones are more purple looking...

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

If you check out my g6 on my profile i have pictures of my blacked out tail lights. Personally i think very highly of the night shade. Ive used it on all my cars including my girlfriends. You can either use one coat for a nice light tint. or a second coat for a medium tint. Then can will tell you that it only recomends three coats so that way the tail lights will still be visiable if it was me i would go with the night shade. I mean i put them on my gfs ford focus and they look nice put againts the white car i went three nice coats on it. The only thing is when painting you have to make sure you get nice even coats on it if not you will have some light and some dark spots. And make sure you do the same step for the second light or you will be able to tell a diffrence in my opion. Ive also heard some people say that they spray clear over top of the night shade honestly i dont but i mean its up to you. I didnt on my car or my gfs car and they both have a nice shine to them

I've seen some people tint their cars and it makes it look like the outside of the tail lights are covered in a rubber texture with no gloss at all. It's from tinting and looks ugly as crap. I like the gloss of the taillight.

I have little to no experience in this field. One day I plan on tinting my tail lights, but I'm going to do it right. Those examples I gave could just be a bad tint job.

You could look at Flyeyes if you want. I've heard of some decent reviews from them. You can even legally tint the headlights as well. Although I'm not a fan of the hexagon pattern on them, it will make the tinting unique and also the lights work as if there is no film over it.

if you decide to spray tint and want them to come out nice, it's all about taking your time, prep work, and wet sanding.
