    Tinting lights?

    can anyone who has done this help me out?

    ive tinted just the amber bit on my gm smoked rear lights masked everything off tinted the exposed bit done about 3 layers of laquer let it dry removed the tape and theres a pretty rough edge from where it has been masked off

    do i use a bit of tcut on it to remove the rough bit? ive got some farecla finishing compund will that be too harsh

    thanks in advance!

    I have read someone using T-cut, but like all forums its probably 5th hand info and therefore cack.

    I'd suggest using something mild like Lime prime with light rubbing action and see how you get on.

    Did you tint the amber bit red? smoked?
