Tinted Tails

I don't want any normal basic tint on my tail lights. They have to be dark and glossy. I want them to match all of my windows and SRT reps. I know i have posted something about tinted tail lights before, but this time i'm going for it and wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions. I want them to look like these, but i have no idea where to go for this.

Re: Tinted Tails

Alot of auto paint shops do tail light tinting but they want an arm and a leg. In the next few weeks I will be attempting to do it myself.

you could even do it your self, i would recomend Vht night shades and to make it super glossy you can even hit it with some clear coat. Probly wont cost more than 14$ for a can of both at your local parts stores. I did this when i had my stock tails but i didnt make them super dark. Just enough for a black cherry color. Came out really well for the money and TIME you put into it.

Re: Tinted Tails

That's the plan. I'm not going crazy dark, just enough so you know they are tinted. I have tinted tails before but these are going to be perfect (I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it could to paint) If its not good enough, its not going on it.

im the same way bro, only i tend to go over kill and will wet sand at 3,000 grit (trizac sanding pad) and then seal and polish it. Only reason im not doing it now is that i think it would spoil the look.

Scott at smokedtaillights.com did mine, he is a JeepGarage vendor and has done many others on here. He can do them in different shades based on your preference. Here is a pic of mine done in medium, they are glossy and perfect!

Around $100 I can't remember exactly. Obviously they aren't done on the vehicle. I removed all of the lights myself and shipped them to Scott, he did the work, packed them up and shipped them back. Check your PM.
