SilverBulletZX5 Hey everyone, so I ordered the precut tail light tint for my car and it didn't work for me at all, it turned out pretty bad, the hardest part was getting the bigger air pockets out and when I tried to do that it would crease the tint..It was taking to long and I ruined the tint, so i just had professionals do it...

..but surprisingly, the easiest part of tinting the tail lights was the third brake light, it just took some patience and some precise cutting around the rear washer sprayer and when I finished I was really happy how it turned out.

(I will be posting pictures soon)

stealthzx3 as for the tint spray glossy-ness, i guess it all depends on how you use it. i spray 15-20" away. but if i'm not mistaken, the closer you spray, the glossier it will be.

SilverST05 I would use the Nite Shade. I used it on my taillights. And it looks pretty tough. Btw, it was plenty glossy.

rustoleum doesn't dry glossy. my buddy used it and it came out as flat as my vht.
