Looks good. How long did it take you and what did you use.

took about a half an hour.. first we removed and cleaned them, then put a coat of using VHT nightshade, let that dry,and put 2 more coats on. We actually ran out of tint so i gotta get more and finish it up.

Cool, no sanding or clearcoat? Looks good though.

i do want to get clearcoat, im gonna do that when i get more tint, i cant right now because the closest place that has any is about 25 minutes away. Next: Probably headlights, i dont have alot of money, bacause im in college and live on my own, but ive been scouting out some possibilities with the help of a few people here.

Oh funny thing, tinted tails wont pass inspection in New York state. A guy at auto zone that used to inspect cars told me, after the fact.

how much did u spent on the VHT nightshade?
inspection is not a problem for me with tinted tails..
my friend's cousin works in a shop.. and they also do inspection... i can just come in there and buy the inspection sticker.. without doing the actual inspection

That's two coats each I thought it would be a little lighter but it looks good. You couldn't get the third brake light?
