    I tried film and its almost impossible to put it on unless ur a proffesional. You should use VHT night shades spraypaint. Thats what i used or get it professionaly done

    I had a shop wrap my tails in red vinyl. It looks clean. No way in hell I'd attempt it by myself.

    Thanks. I'm not a big fan of tinted tails or the stock pink ones. lol

    Plus, they're glossy and not matte like a lot of the VHT tinted tails are.

    Thanks for the feedback guys!

    I just happen to run into this while browsing Ebay looking for a spare set of taillights to do the night shade mod and wondered if anyone was familiar with these, as this is the first I have seen of these tinted vinyl applications for lights and it's great that there are some folks who have some sort of experience with these.
