Black bowtie and tint taillights
I painted the the bowtie black and it looks great. Now all i need is a billet grille and then paint that black to match it and I'm thinking about smoking the taillights with film tint. I was wondering if anyone has ever done any of these ideas yet? If so, provide some tips and some pics.2000 Silverado V8 5.3L

yeah i heard people spray this like night shade tint spray stuff on their lights and it does look good. i want to try film tint cause my buddy has it on his titan and it looks cool.

^i've done tinted tails on several of my cars, and i would not recommend the film overlays. the quality is night and day difference between film overlay and spray on. however, spray on is only good if its done right.
i would recommend jonstintedtails.com. they do quailty work, and on average charge about $80 to do a pair of taillights to the darkness of your liking. the site describes the process they use. and they also have a fast turn around time, so your not stuck without taillights for a long time.
