    Default tinted taillights?

    does anyone here know how to slightly tint their taillights? not enough to get pulled over all the time but dark enough to notice. kinda like the truck on chschevy58's photo album. dont know how to pull the image to here but check it out if you have the time they look real nice.

    If you're looking to just slightly tint your tail lights, there's this stuff called VHT Nightsahde,it comes in a rattle can and you can find at most auto parts stores (Pep Boys, Autozone, etc....) Just clean your tail lights of dirt & grime and spray it on.

    I took my tail lights to a a local paint shop and had them done. They dropped a few drops of black in to the clear and sprayed them.

    The only way I have seen it done is the rattle can, you can build up the layers if you want it darker.

    These are how mine turned out after clear and drops of black. Its your own taste but I think the covers look tacky and cheap.

    Paint looks "cleaner" IMHO.

    i know about the nightshades. i work at advance auto parts. it can be taken off with goo gone graffiti remover and or brake fluid. i also dont like the covers cuz i dont want to have to take them off at night and was trying not to spend the bucks on smoked led tails. id like too but my parts guy pay check cant afford it ha. thanks for your input guys. il prob just do a dusting of nightshades. dont want to get pulled over constantly.
