    Tinted my Taillights

    Yesterday i tinted my taillights with vht nightshade. I wanted to get the aftermarket taillights but dont wanna deal with my instrument panel lighting up like christmas so 2 coats and 15$ later this is the end result. No sanding as they are new lights and no clear coat as vht has clear coat in it and they dont recommend it.

    I rotated your picture 180 degrees. Before you post you might have to rotate your pic 180 degrees so it's upside down, save it, then rotate again and save it before posting. I have to do this before posting a pic. Weird glitch for sure.
