Light Tints

AM has tint kits available for all my lights, but is it worth it?

Looking at the options to black out my car.

I was thinking the same. Think it would deff be a good look. I've already blacked out almost everything except for the rims. I've seen the tail light done on a buddies of mine and it looks a lot better. I will eventually get it done. I say go for it. And let us know how it looks.

I bought the new coyote smoked tail lights, I thought they would be darker than what they are, so will probably will buy some tint, what ever u do dont get the smoked tail light covers. They kept popping out and eventually cracked from me pushing them back in

Raxiom smoked tail lights. They didn't look dark when in the box. But once installed, they looked completely different.

All of my lights are blacked out. If you get the headlight tint/covers you'll have to upgrade your bulbs so that you can see. I have headlights, taillights, turn signals, and quarter lights all black

I have the headlight covers as well, with hid bulbs. when you take off the covers do you scratch the top of them? seems like you cant get them off without scratching them.

Yeah the top right corner on the passenger side and the left corner on the drivers side because that one part goes under the frame of the car. I think AM made it like that because people were complaining about them popping off while driving. AM just brought back the rear covers I'm going to order those Friday.

Yes, the one on the drivers was the worst one, same thing on my headlight covers, the drivers side one keeps popping out on one side, cant keep it in

You might have to get some of that 3M Velcro to that area to keep it in.

well. i went to auto zone and bout a can of "spray tint" made for lights. i took my tail lights off the back. and i did my best at putting on an even coat when i sprayed it on. it actually came out pretty good. you really cant tell that i sprayed them myself. its simple but be VERY careful and have a VERY steady hand when spraying. but it was easy and only coast me about $10 and a little time to do. and many people think it looks like i payed a professional to do it.

Well **** that's a damn good idea man. Did you do your signals and stuff and how did you get that back panel ? Like in between your tail lights

they do sell some stuff to take it off. but you definatly need to do it right the first time. but they sell stuff (forgot what it is called) to get it off. but some other products take it off two. i heard its really hard to get off. but i love mine so i had no reason to look for a way to take it off.

When I took it off my front lights I just used mineral oil and a straight razor and it came right off
