As I posted previously, I tinted mine with a film tint (Rvinyl) and it didn't turn out so great (edges started to peel almost immediately). So, I rec'd a refund and I am going to have them spray tinted. I was thinking of sending mine out to Daniel or Jon, but heard there is a local place so I'm gonna check them out this weekend.

The film tint I used was dark smoke which blocks 33% of the light... the light smoke version blocks 13% of the light.
I found the link on the web so I wont take the credit.

Check out this thread with video.....
It isn't that difficult at all.... but first time is time consuming.

Re: Do you guys think this is too black??

Looks good. IMO I would have the reverse cut outs. But I like the darkness. If not enough light get LED bulbs. Theyre brighter than stock halogens.

Re: Do you guys think this is too black??

I think it looks sweet. I personally wouldn't do it on my own but i admire those who have done it and I like it better with the white reverse spots blacked out as well. Did you use the same tint on the lower reflectors in the bumper?
