tail light tint - Review/opinion?

Anyone have any experience with these, or anything similar?

These are way cheaper than the vinyl-x brand and any smoke taillight online, but dunno about ease of use/quality. I don't want to Nightshade my lights, as I like to have the option to go back to stock if I have law trouble with these. FYI I plan to get the lighter 35%, not the 20% that they show.

I saw that 2 have been sold by this company in the past 2 weeks, and was hoping it was someone from tacomaworld.

FYI, two shades of Nightshades is perfect IMO. That stuff you're looking at will eventually fade. Nightshades can be removed with polish or light sandpaper. Plastic is really easy to work with.

i didnt try THAT exact brand, but on my old honda i picked up some left over scrap tint from the local tint shop (i dont remember the %), and put it on myself, got the job done and just peeled it off when tired of it, but then i traded in and got the taco and used VHT

I bought a whole sheet of the stuff on ebay and it turned out pretty good. It requires a lot of patience and a heat gun. Use the heat gun to stretch out the vinyl over the curves. I had to stretch it quite a bit to get rid of bubbles and creases so I wouldn't bother getting the precut stuff since you'll end up shaping it yourself anyways.
