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.

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.

Sweet deal, if you have a plan to keep the brightness there I would go for it!

I'll hit it up tomorrow. I wanted to wash the jeep today, and I have the attention span of a rasin.

I won't be able to get to the LED tails til next week though, but I'll take some new pics tomorrow of the cleaned up verson.
