    Tinted my Rears - Opinions?

    Tinted my rear lights the other day! First time doing it so opinions would be cool! Don't be too mean mind ! :



    Sorry the picture isn't top notch, car hasn't been cleaned in a while either. (I know the date on the picture is WAY off, haven't set the cameras date/time)

    Looks good, I was going to do the same thing when I tinted mine and leave the reverse light untinted, but I think it looks good on your car as it ties in with the silver paint

    Thanks Riskoe, I think the reverse strip left untinted fits in well with the silver.

    Mk4rob, how much were they going for? Wouldn't justify paying anymore than £20 as thats basically what the items I needed for doing the job was!

    Looks good but the bit you left clear i would give it a very light coat as well.

    You think? I was debating this when I'd finished, maybe just to break up the look a little...but i'm happy with them for now, can always spray lightly if needed.
