Me too! And it might seem complicated to do but if you can spray a rattle can, you can do it!

Re: VHT Nightshade vs Pre cut tint for lights

I know lol its awesome during the day though. When it gets hot if I run the AC, then put my visor shield in the front window, i can be gone for hours, come back, open the doors and its still ice cold haha. (when the tops up of course)

I wad just gonna chime in here... there's a blacked out v6 here amd the owner wired the little lisence frame lights to the reverse lights and then wired a couple of high intensity leds to it. After a little custom mounting it looks awesome. Can't see the lights from the rear when off. Provide better backup light and personally I love the solution. Hees BLACK but has bright leds in the housing and I wouldn't even call them dangerous during the day. Brake lights are BRIGHT.

Awesome Fix!

I am going back to stock anyways. I am tired of cops pulling me over, then letting me go. I have yet to be ticketed for it, but at the same time, being pulled over as everyone knows puts a 20-30 minute damper in your day.

Ya for best results and faster drying...after the 3 coats and 3 clear coates it has to dry for 1-1 1/2 hrs....faster and better in direct sunlight. BTW, the final step after clear is sanding and compound the clear, when it said you have to "RUB HARD"...seriously do it hard. Even if it looks like its done and dry, still rub. After you buff, if they still have a haze, repeat process!

I don't remember what I did to my car but when the dirt landed on it it rolled off. Rain would just bead it. It was sick.
