Here is my tinted tails, I am experienced spray painter on an experienced track don't try this at home! Just kidding, I have spray painted a lot of stuff in my time! I have never used Niteshades but I think they turned out pretty much amazing! Bon apetite!

Me thinks it looks way more aggressive!

Its a spray-can you buy. You can get it on ebay otherwise I got mine from O'Reillys. It varies from 10.99 a can to 16.99 a can. I don't see why money would be a problem it is extremely cheap to do. I did my buddies tails too. I will post pics in a minute.

I used one can and I did all of my taillights and the tundra and I am thinking I can do my buddies silverado still. If someone is nervous about doing it I can do it for shipping plus the cost of a can so like 12-16$ plus shipping

Not bad dude, I am seriously thinking about doing this to my car. If some people are nervous about it or weary kind of like me, maybe you could do a DIY when you do your buddies silverado?

yeah, i did mine too...cops made me take it off cuz it was too dark. so i substituted 5 shades for 1, haha. its pretty easy though. just wash the lights of dirt/oil, sand with fine grit 1000 sand paper, spray lights and do well to avoid runs and thick spots, let dry, sand, clear coat.

I didnt need to sand or clearcoat only take off, sand with 1000 grit just enough to clean them up. then dust coat until liking. It says on the can to spray even coats but when i spray paint I only dust it so I can get better more solid coats. hmmm.

I'm just too lazy to do mine...I have 2 cans of the stuff...wanna do mine? I have to pick up a new pass. tail light as the set I bought on ebay came with a pass. side that was cracked.

I've got the Nite-Shades, I've got a couple different grits of sand paper (600 or 800, 1000 and 1500), and I've got the clear coat. Just too lazy to get it done. Let me know what you'd want.

07cobaltls yea I can do em, I have been charging my buddies 20$ and people I dont know $35 so I can 20$ for you. I didn't clearcoat or sand after and I think they turned out great. I don't think it says to clearcoat after.



The popo can pull you over, my buddy got a 185$ ticket for his s10.
