My Tinted Tails

Just got done tinting my tails.

All i did was clean tails with a thinner, wash them up with water, dry them, and spray them with vht nightshades (2 coats). Im really happy how they turned out!

retrofits FTW!!! God I love mine.
tails look good!!! a good darkness and look pretty glassy/reflective, I like!!!

I was thinkin bout doing this, but I really want some clean ass LED tails so i'm going to wait and when I'm ready to buy the LED tails I'll probably do one or two light coats on them. It'll be different :D

Nice work.

if you have a couple hours id do it on your set now too. it only cost me $11 bucks to do + the can would have enough to last for your LED set also

i got a secret project i wanna work on in my future with my tails.. led rings in both inner and outers, with a dual rings in the inners. small ring for reverse lights, big one for the "red" lights.. should look badass but id have to get another set of tails then figure out the wiring which could take a bit of thinking + time lol
