Re: Thoughts on blackout taillight tint?

I would, it matches the white/black motif you have going. Your *** end is gonna look a lot like a 13's when you are done.

Normally I say no... But on your ride it would just fit. So yes.

Definately, it would look great with the white and your already dark wheels.

I sprayed mine, it looks great! I recommend it highly. Plus you LEDs are so bright as it is they'll be plenty bright still.

I've heard people say that they have sprayed theirs. What kind of spray and where do you get it from. How hard was it to do? Did you remove the tail lights? Mine is black and I'm thinking of doing the same thing but don't wanna mess with tint.

I did mine at a local sound/tint store, and I removed the taillights, third brake light and the rear side markers. If you remove them, its way cheaper and a lot better quality.
