Yeah you're probably right. Do you have a suggestion of what would look nice? my car is black in case you're wondering.uhmm.. you arent going to want to run tint film over your rear lights as it looks terrible on the coupes unless your extremely good at wrapping due to the complication shape of the coupe tails. Notice they dont show any side-shots?? there is a reason for that
Yeah it looks really good! But I've already nightshaded my tail light (I did it last year) so do I do like 2-3 coasts or I scuff them and start it again?i used VHT nightshades on my old car and they came out perfect. It does take some patience though to do it right.
you going to want to scuff them with like a 2000 grit sandpaper then wipe clean
spray 2-4 even light coats of VHT (depending on the darkness you want)
spray 3+ coats of clear after the VHT
then your going to want to wetsand with 2000 grit once again then polish them to a shine with meguiars scratch x2.0
heres the results on my old LT, ignore the dirty car.. they came out super glossy. I did 4 coats of VHT.. total cost was maybe $15 at most
I did mine with vinyl film and it is flawless. Patience is all it needs to be done correctly.uhmm.. you arent going to want to run tint film over your rear lights as it looks terrible on the coupes unless your extremely good at wrapping due to the complication shape of the coupe tails.

Yea thanks lol...I knew wet sanding was exactly what it sounded like but iv never done it so I didn't know if there was a trick to it other than keeping it wet. And as for the polish I didn't know if you used a buffer which I should have specified instead of what I saidall wetsanding consists of is taking your high grit sandpaper (normally 1500-2000) and soaking it in a bucket of water. The whole idea is to keep the paper and whatever you are sanding wet! so as you go keep dipping your sandpaper in the water and keep the whole taillight (in this case) wet so it will slide across the surface easier. Thats really the only difference in comparison to the usual sanding/scuffing process.
as far as the polishing goes, just buy it and follow the directions which just consists of rubbing it on with a microfiber cloth until the part you are polishing is shiny. not very difficult at all lol
Does that help??
he used nightshade...says so right hereI used spray on Nightshade on the Ford Mustang tail lights, it looks nice a dark, but I don't think spray on will get a result as good as padlocks posted images, they pretty much look like they were simply painted black, really nice.
