They might not match....a new set will look better, and leaving the reverse untinted can be hard to get perfect.

If you want them untinted just mask them off and use nightshades. I did mine. I can post a picture for you later if you want. If you want reverse tinted then just spray the whole thing. It's fairly simple if you can spray evenly. Take them out if you do it so you don't get any on your paint.

If you do want the reverse lights left untinted, take your time masking off

Check with your state's laws regarding tinting of tail lamps before slapping them on there, then getting a citation later. Most people if none are available, use Nightshades, but don't go spray crazy, you need to first wetsand to get the initial grime off the tails. Then apply the VHT nightshades lightly.
