Re: Head & tail tint/paint

kinda hard to describe but its kinda like a distortion in the paint. some say it's due to the halogen bulbs if you are using stockers while LEDs can prevent that

Re: Head & tail tint/paint

I had my friend paint mine. He just mixed black paint in with clear and they came out perfect on my stock Tails. VHT doesn't even come close to the quality of them now. And you can ask a local body shop to paint for prob like $40-50

Just be sure to specify how dark/light you want them as I've seen some come out too dark on people's vehicles
