my SRT4 i had sprayed just enough to add a tint to the lights no problems...

ill most likely be spraying my focus with VHT soon, but i got a kit from rvinyl.com to apply tint to my tails ill post pics when i get them on

Ghost, i think you probably have the cleanest job ive seen in awhile!
Thank you. Post pics when you're done

YEP....SO....

got the kit, and dont waste the money....

the tip of the backup light area forms a point that is too sharp and not sharp enough at the same time, plus there is an angle down underneath it aswell...

i just spent about 2 hours with a buddy that lays vinyl and does tint for a living and got no where... waste of time and money!

if you want tinted lights, VHT Nightshades or have it painted by a pro...

dont waste your time on the films...

also mjst be able to see the tail lights from certain distances as well as the reflectors in the housing. got yelled at by a cop for it one night.....

I really don't like the blacked out headlight/taillight look myself, but that is subjective. As long as everyone is happy with what their doing to their own cars, life is good.

I do, however, like the light tints on the headlights/rear lights. Especially the headlights on 2012sel's hatch.

I also second seeing some tint on a SGM! I'm very curious.

You could have said what you needed to say without using the words trashy and ghetto. Poor choice of words and seems like you're looking for Flame!!! I'm sure you've read the post because your using the same words someone used. Hmmm
