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.

^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.

(not my truck):

I just checked the sight and it was around $230 +/- plus shipping for tail lights for a 03-06 silverado.
Where are you finding them for around $80 ?

i have also tinted out tail lights on my old pick up trucks like most of the guys have said on here you need to scuff up the lens and if you can get your hands on a spray gun mix some black with clear coat and then paint the less clear you put in the darker the shade you get it looks alot better then film film tends to fade out and peel but it's your ride buddy just feeding ya some input the bow tie looks good
