    hey man if you want i can do a light coat of tint on your tails. Or a cool trick to spice up your tails, go to walmart or really anyone that sells Testors paint. They should have a transparent Candy paint for model cars, scuff up your tails and shot your tails with that and they look amazing :thumb:

    I just did mine with Nightshades, made specifically for smoking taillights.. As a matter of fact, they are on my kitchen table still. ;D
