Re: New product I saw on another forum

Stuff looks pretty cool. I was even ready to order it until I saw the price. I figured it would be $20-$25. But $70 for it.....

*EDIT* Actually went to the site and looked. I don't know the measurement on the tail lights, but I can't imagine they're bigger than 30cm X 45cm (11.75" X 17.75"). Two sheets comes to 9.45GBP or just over $15. That's not bad at all for tinting tails. I think I'll order 2 sheets once I verify the dimensions will work.

It depends on how you do it. If you just spray NiteShades and leave it, it'll fade and come after a year or so. If you use NiteShades and then spray clear, it'll last for at least 5+ years (that's the longest I've had experience with and it still looked like new).

Re: New product I saw on another forum

JEEPME - thanks for clarifying on the night shades!

Also, i did mention that me being a lazy slob probably costed me 40 bucks or more perhaps - it was dark and raining at the time and paypal made it to easy to give up the green, but if it works I could tint anything else that I need to with the extra/left over.

Yeah, I saw the OP and $70 and was like

Then I went to the site and saw that it would really only cost me about $15 for the tails. I've always done NiteShades but by the time you buy the tint and clearcoat, it's around $15 plus 1/2 day.

I'm going to try this on my Jeep as I've been wanting to tint them but haven't been willing to put in the time.

Re: New product I saw on another forum

I've got this stuff on my Jeep just now. Its pretty good and about as cheap as buying tint spary (at least over here anyway).

Easy as shit to work with and is surprisingly tough.

The downside is, that up close it tends to look pretty crap. Like someone has stretched a pair of stockings over the lights. Froma distance it's cool though.

I'll be taking it off at some stage in the near future to spray my lights instead.

Re: New product I saw on another forum

Like aaron said in his post above there are holes in it... But for me I don't like the material and I am not putting it on.

There are no closeup pics on the website nor in the youtube video. there wasn't any clear indication that there were holes int he product. I was expecting a film (like window tint) that didn't have any holes or pores in the surface.

I have already requested a refund - up to you if you want it for your ride. you probably wouldn't even notice from afar - but minor details like this matter to me and it would bug me...

You're right. From a distance it looks quite good, but up close, I'm not keen. I bought because I wasn't too sure about the legality of spray tinting my lights. Even the police couldn't give me a definitive answer.

It is a good product if you know exactly what you are getting. From memory the site says that it allows light to pass through, but I don't think it mentions the holes.
