Smoked Tail Lights and Black Ops Carbon Fiber Rear Brow

I apologize for the terrible photos but they give you an idea of whats going on.

I tinted my tails with Lamin-X (smoked) and cut out the reverse lights -- just for some contrast I suppose.

I also installed the Black Ops Auto Works carbon fiber rear brow. I have to say that Chad @ BlackOps is one of the best vendors I have ever dealt with. He always kept me informed of my order status and was ultra quick to respond to questions.

I couldn't recommend Black Ops more.

After reading the forum I decided to have it professionally installed. They said it was an amazing PITA.

Honestly I wouldn't do it yourself. I bought the kit and ended up tossing it in the trash cause it looked so bad. Spend the money on the professional install.

Re: Smoked Tail Lights and Black Ops Carbon Fiber Rear Brow

i called 3 tint places today and none of them want to use someone elses film. which i understand. they explained how they are not used to that film and how it stretches etc. and how if they ruin it they dont want to be responsible for having to pay me back for it.

Re: Smoked Tail Lights and Black Ops Carbon Fiber Rear Brow

durangoZJ - looks good man, you said thats "smoke" and not "gun smoke"? cuz i put gun smoke on mine and looks the exact same.

akimbal - i did my install myself and it turned out perfect, it does take some time and patience, but if you have any skill with vinyl you would prolly be fine. if not check on lamin-x web site for vender/installer locator

Yeah. I'm 99% sure. Package was also marked 'Smoke'. I wish it was just a bit lighter. Brake lights come through just fine though.
