Is there any difference between using a tail light tint cover versus using the VHT nightshade method? I know the VHT nightshade will probably show up better since it's a spray but is it a big difference?

I heard bad things with vinyl tint though, like it causes bending in the tail lights. Is this true? It can also be removed easily right? Also any brand recommendations?

Never happened to me. Yes they can be removed easily. You'll need a blowdrier to install em. Any from eBay are fine. But buy the uncut roll. Don't buy the ones that are precut. It makes it harder. Buy some that are 12"x24"
