If you do this, in exactly 43 hours, 22 minutes, and 32 seconds after laying the paint on you will wish you hadn't...JK...LoL!

Lol, I would tend to agree. I personally don't think it would look very good.

He wouldn't be able to paint it back. The rear diffuser is unpainted black plastic. He'd have to repaint the entire thing a matte black if he wanted to "undo" the red. It's definitely something you'd have to be really sure about. Not a "try it and see how it looks!" thing.

tails on my car. also for your car, I tinted the rear window.. and Rear emblem... removed the color from the red reflectors
That looks pretty cool I think. Did you actually use tint or some sort of spray stuff?

Spray tint
question about the spray tint on the reflectors-
how does that work out as far as the reflectors actually reflecting?

i understand how the tinted tails work (bright light inside)
but the reflectors- the light has to pass thru the tint on the way in- then pass back thru the tint as its reflecting..........

I didnt like the look of them so i tinted it first to see if i liked it... ended up just painting them black... not really sure why they are there in the first place.
