My Smoked Tail Lights.....:)

Hey guys i finally went around to smoke my tail lights. Tell me what u think.

P.s i didnt smoke the white parts cuz thats the reverse light, and if i did smoke em the cops will def. pull me over.

The downside of it, is that the final outcome is a matt finish. Does anyone know what clear gloss spray to buy so i can layer it with a gloss finish??

Ha thanks for u opinion, i was shittin myself today cuz there were 2 cops driving behind me for like 5 mins......but i didnt get pulled over :)


oscarying sure if u wanna do it. I dont know how to take out the echo tail lights, there should be a tutorial somewhere. All u need is some tail light smokin spray paint. I its called "Nite-Shades from VHT" just go down to ur local autobarn, repco, supercheap auto and they will have it. and u need some maskin tape. (I used some cheapo crappy one. It worked like a charm")

tape up whatever parts u dont want sprayed and off you go. Unless u really want a detailed tutorial

Looks very good! I like it !

I found an interesting thing.. the lower section of the reverse light isn't white (red instead), isn't it the rear fog light? Since ours are the same on both side.

Humm, too much dark and too much matt... is it a film or a paint? If it's a film I suggest to try another darkness level. :)

it's a little dark for my taste (well, not my taste, but the cop's taste if you know what i mean), but i like these smoked tails.

approximately how many coats did you go through?

don't quote me on this, but if i remember correctly from other tutorials, regular clearcoat would do.
