    Got some euro tails from droptop and then had them tinted by KB... They look great! If anyone is thinking about getting tinting done, send it to KB, they look better in person then the pics do justice..
    It was very overcast out yesterday when I took these pics.. It literary started raining 10 mins after i finished..

    lights off

    it's actually with a spray gun... Not anything like the cheap vht niteshades... I can guarantee you that they look a lot better than the pics do... Plus they are just a little greasy from me working on them, as I never cleaned them off since it rained..

    I doubt I will, I was running crappy taillight tint that didn't cover the whole lens for quite awhile, like 1.5 years...

    they do look good but they are hard to see.. when i was out cruising around with paul a while back, i could barely see hiim ahead of me at night even when the brakes were on.. they are very dark. but they do look awesome..

    my dad doesn't want me tinting mine because of that reason. so mine will remain red. which is ok with me because my dad doesn't ask me to do a lot of things.

    glad you like em man.,

    Guys keep in mind that is with his running lights only not when he hits the brakes. Also keep in mind that those tails i have 2 pieces of plastic between the bulb and tint, so it will look dark. Stock tails come out brighter.

    Hey man if you can or worried, leave your 3rd brake light stock. and also they make hyperwhite (or higher wattage bulbs) you can put in there and its night and day difference.

    Please let me know if you have any problems. Im always willing to fix my faults, or if they are not to your liking help ya out with a redo price. I know mine were darker than yours, and i got stopped, but still your 3rd brake light should help. LMK man i dont want to leave you hanging.

    i want to do mine but my dad doesn't want me too.. im moving up to denton btw this summer.. (im going to UNT) maybe when i do that, i can drop the lights off to you.. i imagine just a light tint would look better than stock.. id want them pretty dark but i think a little red might look good? iono we can discuss it..

    this summer though, maybe ill hit you up about doing it.
