pros and cons of each?

got my windows tinted today-
guy that owns the shop did the tinting-
i ran a few of the "decoration" ideas i was tossing around and he liked them
till- i got to the point about the light lenses.....
yes he will more than gladly do the vynyle overlaps (damn spelling)
to the head/tail/fog lights...........
but - he said- that in his experience- that the vinyle (damn spelling again)
will ...i think he used the phrase "burn thru" or something like that-
asked him to clarify- he said that the area that gets the brightest light from the bulbs will start to turn clear......

so - how many of you have had vynle (damn spelling again) overlays on lights and what have been the long term experience?
(and on same token- painted lenses- feel free to speak up on your long term experiences)

joey

ps- yes- i gotta get a digital camera- or get that girl at work w/the big fancy digital to start taking pictures for me......

no- he wasnt saying anything about the lights- he was saying that the vinyl (gotta remember that) - would get more see thru and lose its color directly over the areas where the bulbs were at......so you would end up over time w/smoked lenses- except where the bulbs were.
now- never having gone the smoked route (tint or paint) i am curious-
after all- it can't be that hard to slap on vinyl on the lenses if you have been putting tint on all sorts of windows for years........so he cant be just saying all of that to avoid a 'difficult' job....
so does anyone here have experience of having vinyl on their lenses over a long (years - lets say 3 years)
does the color of the vinyl look the same from one end to the other? or have you notice a lightening of the color over the direct light source?

joey
