If you go with the VHT clear caswell plating now has some in. If you are going to get some hurry. Once they are out this time that's it. I ordered some about 1-1/2 months ago. I'll get it tomorrow. If I knew it wouldn've taken this long I would've went to auto zone.

well, i took off the pre-cut tint and im waiting on my two cans of spay. im going to do both tails and the 3rd brake cover. Also i have a saleen wing on the way and i might nite shade the lights on it too. this is a great write up and just one thing, do you have pics when you taped off the reverse lights.

Sadly no.

I just used Automotive masking tape the second time and taped them off basically layed it and traced it to make it perfect.

Glad to see your going with the shade rather then a sticker

And lolly thanks

also what you think about the saleen wing, its black and im thinking about leaving it black to go with the theme of my car since i have black projectors, black side markers, and now going to have nite shaded tails and 3rd brake. i only paid $65 shipped for it.

I vote leave it black to tie in the rest of the exterior mods with it. If you don't like it maybe leave the middle black and the outer part color matched to tie both in.
