Plasti Dip tail lights?

Im planning on making my tail lights on my 2010 focus sedan darker or give it that smokey look. I was looking into Plasti Dip and DipYourCar.com and that seems to work pretty well, anyone use this product before?

I also agree with the rest, avoid plasti dip, for this one. I'd go with pre-cut tail light tints or at least self adhesive tint film. If you should decide niteshade, make sure to apply it in a "side to side motion" and with a very steady grip.

I'm actually thinking self adhesive tint film, might be cheaper and if I mess up I can always take it off

nite-shade and rustoleum are about 5-10 bucks , also it can be removed with gasoline and a rag , the precuts are usually a bit more expensive

Yup! Now we're talking!.. That's the beauty of self adhesive tint film, you can always take it off or re-do it. And, yeah! It's absolutely inexpensive.
