Tinted or Painted?

So I have been thinking about tinting my tails, but I just got bored with some paint and experimented on mt third break light.

What do you all think Tint or Paint?? I haven't pollished or wet sanded this yet, so it's not smooth.

Anyway if you do want to do it yourself, I'd go with tint.

Re: Tinted or Painted?

Be careful with paint, you still want the light transfer when you are braking....

Yep. That's why there is only 2 light coats, and I'm making my own LED system in them to make it even brighter.
