How Your Tails Get Tinted!

First Things First

You sand the entire light with either grey scotchbrite, 1000 grit paper and water(I use this method if there are heavy scratches in the light)

Then I mask up the reverse area if it is staying clear


I preclean them with DX330 PPGs best wax & grease remover to ensure all the contaminates are off the lense



Then I mix up my special mixture of basecoat to ensure the best light transfer



Then I apply the base coat to the desired darkness



Then I remove the reverse tape if I masked it off after I get the desired darkness


No its time for clear, the finishing magic touch


A clean big area is also key to having a clean paint job



And the finished product (note these tails are not the ones tinted in the above photographs, these are a little darker)




Walla Your Done!


THE ABOVE WAS PERFORMED BY PROFFESIONALS PLEASE DONT TRY THIS AT HOME UNLESS YOU WANT TO MESS SOMETHING UP AND HAVE O.S.H.A. POP YOU A BIG FINE. JUST SEND THEM TO ME AND IT WILL ALL BE OK!

Re: How Your Tails Get Tinted!

Do you wet sand them and polish after the clear cures? or does it dry smooth like that?
