Tinted My Tail Lights, What Do Ya Think?

My friend and I tinted my tail lights yesterday. I also did the brake light by hand. I think it turned out alright for the first try haha.

Looks good!
but clear coat them! That way they can be shiny!

Good job on the reverse lights though.

Thanks for the input! I kinda like the flattish look. High gloss would probably look good too. We'll seeee.
