Tinted Tails & Painted Rear Brow

Recently had my tails tinted and the rear brow color-matched. All work was done by Scott's Paint & Performance (a JG Vendor). This is the third set of Tails that Scott has done for me and every time I am very pleased.

I am also very happy with the color-match/paint work on the rear brow and will be sending him a front grille and mirror covers to color-match as well.

I've included a night shot with the flash on to show that the reflectors still function when tinted.

Re: Tinted Tails & Painted Rear Brow

I really like that you didn't tint the reverse light. Also the painted rear brow looks great, should have come that way. The big chrome brow was to much

Re: Tinted Tails & Painted Rear Brow PLUS VG Sharkfin and LED Fogs

I've rec'd a few items in the mail over the past few days and I finally had an opportunity to install a some today....




Got the VG Sharkfin installed...











*I e-mailed VG through their eBay store because their site is still down despite saying it will re-open on 01 July. I asked for the price I rec'd when JG did a group buy back in early 2011 ($55 + $12 shipping) and while the price wasn't honored I did get a discount equal to free shipping, current pricing is $75 + $12 shipping.


and the Xenon Depot 30W CREE LED Fogs (5202/H16) in 5000k -- I tried to get some good pics but the cell phone only does so much. Rest assured the 5000k is WHITE, I do not see any hint of blue and at first was upset by my choice in color temp (5k vs. 6k) because the factory HIDs have a touch of blue when first turned on but after the HIDs settled-in the color became much closer. The Xenon Depot puts out good useable light and looks good in the housing as well.











and a this one which I thought looked cool despite showing nothing of value




Hopefully I will get to the LED front turn signals (with the hope to loose the egg yolk look), tow hooks and pedals this weekend.

Re: Tinted Tails & Painted Rear Brow

That is really clean looking it reminds me of the 2014 Durango tails with the black.

Thanks, too bad I don't have LEDs lke the Durango, well not the racetrack portion -- thats too much LED for me.

On my 2011 Grand I did a dark with the reverse portion clear and I felt it was just a bit too much -- not to mention getting paranoid every-time a cop was behind me. (Recent Mods: Removed Chrome Door Molding, Grille Swap, Tow Hooks, LED Fogs & RRO Lift)

So, this time I wanted to see a hint of red and since my jeep is black I wanted that gradual fade to make it look as factory as possible.

Very similar... I asked for a black outer edge and then to have an even transition fade inwards from the black edge progressing through med-dark and finally a medium tint in the center portion.

Thanks, should be good to go now. If not i'll just attach the photos to the thread. I've had problems with flickr when trying to post a smaller pic size instead of the original size on other forums too so I am not surprised. It's as if they routinely change the image address.
