Yea i know another Nightshade thread...

I read thru the others and i just wana get some things straight.

Im gana go get a can of VHT Nightshades tomorrow and do my tails.

I was wondering...
1. What should i do for prep work?
2. What should i do to remove the lights?
3. Any techniques or tips for how to do them?
4. And Ive seen different ways to do it...Blacked out/Smoked/The white circles left white/ The sides of the lights blacked out and the front left red and opinions on what looks best?

Thanks alot:laugh:

Wash your tails very nice and sand it with 600 grid. Make sure to sprey even so one light will not be darker than other. Do not sprey more than 3 coats cuz the light cant go trought.

Good luck

If you really want your taillights to look good, go to a auto body shop and ask how much they charge to tint lights. have cash! your lights will come out glossy and great

Ok I know i promised pictures but by the time i finished it got dark and im working the next 2 days so hopefully i can get some pictures up monday and while im at it ill take some pictures of how i did it.

I also wanted to know...I realize the nightshade cuts down on the light.
1. So is it possible to just put LED bulbs in the place of the stock tail light bulbs?
2. How much would that inprove the brightness?
