    Hey guys, I just picked up a set of 09 tails and was wondering if anyone has experience with a paint shop in PHX that would be good to tint them.

    If so, let me know! thanks,

    See build thread.
    Its really not worth taking to a shop to do. Search for the writes up on here and you'll see how easy and cheap it is.

    My buddy does them for $60. But I haven't been able to get a hold of him for a while. All of the guys at mod day loved my lights. Its car paint not that spray paint stuff

    No, I have gone this route before and you can never quite get it as even and clear as a shop can. Plus, the spray tint and clear arent the same grade as automotive paints and wont hold up as long.
