Head & tail tint/paint

Looking to get my tails tinted what do you guys suggest getting them tinted with film or getting the professionally painted. Any pros cons for either? Pics help!

Also want to get the headlights painted. Is there anyone out there who paints headlights do I have any other options? How hard is it to pain the headlights yourself?

Thanks

Re: Head & tail tint/paint

We have a vendor here named Scott in the Vendor Section. Only tint your tailights but I suggest you buy the LED tailights. Reason saying that is because the current one you have will Warp if you tint it. But if you get the LED's they won't warp since they don't produce a lot of heat the normal bulbs do.

Don't tint your headlights. It will look bad. You should do the "Whistler Mod" and paint the inside housings of your headlights Black. There are How-To's on how to do this.

Good luck!

Re: Head & tail tint/paint

dont try it yourself on the headlights.

scott does tails and they are awesome.

so he should be able to do headlights too, although IMO I would use a film on the headlight. they sell precuts and you can get about 5 levels of tint.

Re: Head & tail tint/paint

around $150ish. What year is your jeep? If its 07-10 you will also need a taillight adapter to make the 05-06 style lights to work on 07+.

Re: Head & tail tint/paint

Davy, is this the adaptor you used? http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=8206

what HID tail kit did you use? i did search and found this
http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?p=218065
but also found these but they might not be as bright as i want them especially if i do a full smoke on the tail.

Re: Head & tail tint/paint

it looks like the led tail light uses a 3157 back up bulb so the 921 HID kit wouldn't work...
