my guess would have been the painters tape. just do it good. if you do it the proper way you shouldnt have a problem.

Yeah, Ive got it done now. They are drying.

About the third time Ive redone them lol


I put painters tape across the reverse lights, got a flashlight and shined it through the underside where the 2 holes are and traced and cut off excess.

Looks like sex now! WOO!
Pics soon!

Here's a beter way. Lay some masking tape on a clean table. Guess you would need like two or three strips of it, lay them next to each other so it's approxamite the size of the reverse light. Now, get a protractor and measure from the middle to the edge of the reverse light. I hope u know how to use one. Then draw the circle on the layed tape and cut it with scissors, peel off from table and place on light. Violà

looks good

i kinda wanna smoke my ipcw led tails but i don't wanna mess them up because they were so expensive

only thing i have smoked were my side markers. and i messed the driver side up bc i held the can to close and it dripped
but i got another one and fixed it.

i gota do my third brake light too. but i don't want it that dark because i have the led third brake light

Thanks! Post up pics! You can always get the Night Shades off with goof off if you mess up. Goes right back to regular color.

looks good, i'm just to lazy to re-do mine so i think i'll just try and be uber careful and then wipe goo gone on the part that is the white since they're smoked anyway. did you re-do ALL of the tails?
