Say Goodbye to the Chrome Taillights

This may not float your boat, but I'm happy to be rid of those damn chrome taillights. A little too rice for my taste so I bought 2 cans of the VHT Nightshades tinting paint, it's always good to have a spare. The first time I tinted the entire lens, it looked like 2 big black triangles on the car, or I prefer to say "it looked like ass". Cleaned it all off with enamel reducer and broke out the fine line tape, gave it a better look and settled on just hiding the chrome with a little peaking out around the inside edge. The spray tint comes out and dries shiny so theres no need to clear coat, total film build is around 1 mil. which is about the thickness of a plastic wrapper or 1/1000's of an inch.

Looks GREAT, I like it. Also like the Exhaust tips...NOW, What's that car (under cover in the Garage?)

The mind of the curious one... :thinking:
Man, too bad this won't look good with my silver fusion :[
unless there is something like a "silver smocked" lights, no?
