Hey all, tinted my tails over the weekend, I used VHT Niteshades. A little bit of fine wet sanding, and a few coats of VHT. They are not blacked out, I wanted to go for a nice "dark cherry" look. I think they turned out nice, and a pretty easy process....

Yes Film will come off, the VHT nightshades will not. Thanks guys, I think it looks sweet too. I was on the fence for quite a while about this too.

I got it at Canadian Tire, I just went on the VHT website and looked for local dealers. I did take them out, did a little bit of a wet sand with 2000 grit and a little pit of palmolive dish soap just to take the shine off, the a few very light coats of the VHT. I would recommend a few coats of clear as well. I will get around to it soon.

Been wanting to do this for a couple weeks now. Wasn't sure how it would turn out, but after seeing another silver car done I think I will put it on my to do list for the
weekend. Looks pretty slick and not overdone. I LIKE.

One more thing what % is that like 13%. I don't wanna black mine either.
Just keep coating it until it's as dark as you want it. It's a spray, no real % to it, just depends how much you put on. Best bet would probably be to let it dry a bit in between coats til you get it how dark you want it

I got mine tinted as well. In the Toronto area by a company called Shinzo Werks. So far everyone that has seen them loves the look. I also LED all my lights to complete the look.

Did you tint the clear parts in the tails?

@blackwatch: yes the whole lens is tinted, thats why I replaced the bulbs inside with LEDs. They look very similar to JSINCERE's pics.
