VHT has red, I just picked up a can on clearance at work for 5 cents :p

And if you change your mind it washes right off with "goof off" aerosol spray

i did my led tails earlier this year with it. just cleaned them really well, i don't trust my wetsanding skills or the lack thereof lol. i redid them several times and used gasoline to remove it. i also removed them from the car so i did not have to worry about overspray. on a side note, don't be an idiot like me and forget to mask off the reverse lights, the tails themselves are plenty bright enough though.

You can use VHT or red taillight tint. I would suggest towards the taillight tint

here is exactly what i used (i bought mine at autozone):
http://www.ebay.com/itm/VHT-SP888-Ni...a5ac2f&vxp=mtr

i had the lightest tint on my tails before. this was the exact brand i had before:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pro-Precut-S...7b6d1f&vxp=mtr
you will need this too if you want to upgrade to red:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/RED-Sample-S...item4d032042b4

i just might have to figure out how to get the third brake light out to tint it too:) i love that idea, don't know why i didn't think of that!
