Thanks man. I hate how much the red tails stick out on black. I'm thinking about tinting my fogs too.

It's not too hard. Just take your time. Start off with light coats and keep moving while spraying.

Looks great! I'm going to sand and re-clear my third brake light pretty soon, it's the only piece on my car with any kind of scratches.

Re: Tinted my tails & 3rd brake light

Looks great! I may have to try this myself. Looks like the hardest part was taping off the reverse lights. Did you wet or dry sand with the 1000 grit?

I wet sanded. And taping off the reverse lights is a pain. Because if you look closely the clear over laps the red on one side. It's hard to tell until you start looking at the lens from different angles. You have to pick a line and go with it. I went with the innermost line to the side and at the bottom being that the rest would be blacked out. You don't really want to go with the outside line taping it off because after you spray and remove the tape at certain angles you'll be able to see some red. Also be sure not to clear until after the tape is removed from the backup lights. It sounds a little confusing but when you start to tape off the backup lights you'll see what I'm talking about. For example I taped off right above where you see r1 and l1 on the lights. Even though the clear and red overlaps slightly below it.

Looks great! I had the same idea, I didn't like all the red so I stealthed out my brake lights, 3rd brake light and all my side marker lights. I used the vinyl from American Muscle instead of spraying. Love that stealth look!

Re: Tinted my tails & 3rd brake light

I tinted my vehicle all around. I'm not advocating any one particular dealer but anchor-room.com has them for $37.99. Best deal I've seen for a complete tint. So far, 3 months and I haven't got pulled over. They aren't the darkest you can get but to me...perfect.
