Painted my headlights with shade they look black and match the cars paint. They came out real good. Also have hid lights. You just won't see as far with shaded lights. Same like stock distance. I'm going to get the regular smoke without amber headlights. See really far, especially with the 10,000k

Not hard at all, I just watched some videos on you tube from rvinyl. Got some windex watwer with soap and a blow dryer, and a towel. The vinyl came with the squeegee. the sides require some patience as you have to heat and pull the vynil, You must really take your time.

Re: vinyl precut tail light tints.

Awesome. Looks clean. The headlights, I'm not sure because I don't think BLACKEDOUT ever posted what his looks like now tinted with HID's. My buddy bought 10K HID's with his tinted headlights and they appear greenish because of the tint. I recommend getting 4300K HID for tinted headlights. But anyway, your taillights look amazing with the overlays. Good job!
I changed the look of mine with the spray on but considered using the same type you got to straighten the taillight lenses kinda like this:

Re: vinyl precut tail light tints.

this is the lights after they were painted, without HID's. Vision was limited, so I decided to get HID's.

This is them after they were painted. They were painted with a clear coat black.

10,000K HID lights with tinted headlights, as I said, they appeared white purple.

They dont look bad . Still undecided tho, might just get hid first, then tint them with vinyl and see wat happens
