Smoked Tail Lights

Who's got smoked lights? How did you do it?

I just bought a 7 piece set from eBay for 25 bucks and figured it would be worth a shot! This is the set I bought...

Re: Smoked Tail Lights

Most people that tint their lenses use VHT Nightshade or something similar and basically spray paint them.

I bought this set on eBay and didn't like it. I would get it professionally done because there is slight cutting required around the edges.

Re: Smoked Tail Lights

Smoked taillights may look nice on the car but when a person texting hits you in the butt and says they did not see your brake lights and the cop writes it on the accident report that that the len's have been altered you will be the one paying the damages.

Just another out for the insurance company's so they won't have to pay a claim.

Re: Smoked Tail Lights

I had a chance to give these a shot on Saturday. Let me tell you, not what I was looking for. Not easy to put them on and after trying to get the second one tail light on, I said screw it and threw them away. I'm a pretty handy guy and will take on any project before I ask somebody to do it for me. I don't like other people dealing with my belongings, especially my ride. I learned the meaning of, you get what you pay for.

Very cheap material and created way to many air bubbles. After a solid hour of trying to get all the air bubbles out and taking them off to put them back on I figure these weren't worth my time.

All in all, don't buy this product.

Thanks for the review. After watching a couple of youtube clips of the raxiom tail lights, I think I'm going to go that route.

Re: Smoked Tail Lights

Much better and safer then just painting or coating your tail light Len's.

With the Raxioms you don't have to worry about insurance problems if getting hit from behind.

You get what you pay for.

Yep. Only thing I may do is tint the white reverse lights a bit to a smoked look but still undecided :/ Opinions?
