    (LOTS OF PICS BEWARE) - Tinting My Tail-Lights :D

    hello everyone

    im new on 'ere from Australia (gold coast to be exact), and i have a 1999, Holden Astra, 1.8L 16V auto

    dont have much money but the first mod ive decided to do is to tint my rear lights, so without further adue;



    Tail-lights beforehand;


    and whole rear beforehand;


    During;



    and After;



    anddd;



    I was worried that it'd be too dark (police over here are notorious for pulling over P-platers or young drivers), but i think it turned out pretty well, what do ya reckon?

    cheers

    hey guys, didnt take them out as i hadnt done so before and didnt really wanna risk having to fork out a couple hundred dollars to replace em/fix em

    but nah no overspray, i practiced using the nightshade on me dad's old camry which we have sitting around, got used to the spray density and all that and yeah, went alright i guess, not bad for $15 i reckon.
