Tinted Tails
 
2 Attachment(s)
I don't want any normal basic tint on my tail lights. They have to be dark and glossy. I want them to match all of my windows and SRT reps. I know i have posted something about tinted tail lights before, but this time i'm going for it and wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions. I want them to look like these, but i have no idea where to go for this.

Alot of auto paint shops do tail light tinting but they want an arm and a leg. In the next few weeks I will be attempting to do it myself.

you could even do it your self, i would recomend Vht night shades and to make it super glossy you can even hit it with some clear coat. Probly wont cost more than 14$ for a can of both at your local parts stores. I did this when i had my stock tails but i didnt make them super dark. Just enough for a black cherry color. Came out really well for the money and TIME you put into it.

That's the plan. I'm not going crazy dark, just enough so you know they are tinted. I have tinted tails before but these are going to be perfect (I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it could to paint) If its not good enough, its not going on it.

im the same way bro, only i tend to go over kill and will wet sand at 3,000 grit (trizac sanding pad) and then seal and polish it. Only reason im not doing it now is that i think it would spoil the look.

Scott at smokedtaillights.com did mine, he is a JeepGarage vendor and has done many others on here. He can do them in different shades based on your preference. Here is a pic of mine done in medium, they are glossy and perfect!

Around $100 I can't remember exactly. Obviously they aren't done on the vehicle. I removed all of the lights myself and shipped them to Scott, he did the work, packed them up and shipped them back. Check your PM.
