Alright, I've yet to see to many SN95s with tinted tailights, and I thought I would try to do it on my car. Ive read other places about spray on tint that was bought at the local Auto Zone or something? Anyone know what Im talking about? I know about the VHT spray, but Im just looking for something that I can do on a rainy day, without having to wait for the tint to ship or whatever, Anyone know of something I can use?

The best is the stuff like window tint I know ppl use it on their 03 cobras a lot but I doubt you can get it for us Sn95s. The spray works ok, I have seen it look like crap and sometimes look great. You gotta do the right process, then blast a layer of clear on it after. Super thin coates and take your time.

Matt directed me to this thread.

This is what I did.

1 can of VHT NightShades. Remove and mask off tailights so only the lenses show. Sand lenses with 400 grit sand paper to get them smoothed out and clean. Spray a light coat of VHT. Let dry and lightly sand with 400 again. Spray another light coat. Sand with 800. One more light coat. Then spray with clear. I had a the girl at the dealership I work at spray it with her clear so its perfect and durable. Here are some pics.

Siiiick, I've been looking into doing this on mine. Thanks for the instructions man!

Question though, you think you could do it to a set of projector headlights like in my sig? And if you could would it look right? :dunno:

yeah I dont know how clean it would look though on headlights, they do that that tint like window tint that sticks on tail-lights I know they have them for 99-04's and it looks great.
