    Got bored so I decided to tint my taillights. I did both lights, the 3rd brake light, and the bumper reflectors.
    Sorry for the shitty pics, but the camera thats ok in low light suicks, and the good camera isnt good in low light. Ill get some better pics tomorrow. I still need to clear them. But after that Im done.

    Man somehow I get away with 5% tint on my windows, LOUD ass straight pipes, and Ill more than likely get away with this too.


    Fuk da police. :hammer:

    Ive only been pulled over in my Stang once and it was for speeding. I had the car running the whole time and its pretty loud at idle. He never said anything about it. :dunno:

    Looks good! But I tihnk you should go back to green bezels now that you are tinted....

    Black bezels and tinted lights is a little too much black IMO.

    Do you have refective black bumper inserts?

    Looks good.

    And if you run out of things to tint, why don't you do all three of your mirrors?

    I agree, i'm going to have to go black bezels here soon...i have a cracked taillight and the chances of me getting a green replacement are very slim...so i'll ave to do black until i get me paint.

    Yea, I liked the black bezels but now it seems like alot of black.

    And yea, they are reflective. Im currently talking to someone who might be able to get me some black ones that reflect silver.

    Thats what I used. But its all about prep and the enviroment. I sanded it with some 1200 to get all the stuff that I didnt want off the surface, then wiped it down with denatured alcohol. Then you have to LIGHTLY put a few coats.

    Tint the car till it's black. Then it'd resemble a certain 94.... :banana:
