Nite-Shades

I just picked up a can of nite shades and clear, but im in a pickle. I dont know if i want to tape off my reverse lights and leave those white or just do the whole taillight??? And i was thinking about putting some on the corners of my headlights im not too sure about that though. Post some pics if youve done it on yours?

Yeah, tape off the reverse lights and spray. Its a PITA not being able to see while backing up.

Looks cleaner too.
Ive had experience with both.

At first I did the whole tail light, then I redid it and taped off reverse lights.
Looks a lotttt better!

it'd look sweet and soooo different. if you get a cover, it covers everything, ppl that nightshade usually just do the whole thing. that'll be something awesome to leave them white!!!

Yeah i saw pictures of a tc with the reverse lights taped off and it looked sick so i think thats what im going to do.

I was also thinking about like taping the headlight (outer plastic) in front of the main headlight bulb and spraying the rest of the headlight if that makes any sense? so the inner part of the headlight wouldnt be painted

But remember....its your ride - do what YOU want to with it. I personally would think it would look good myself, but I also wouldn't do it just because 99.9% of everyone thinks it looks good.
