I used vht spray tail light tints and came out great. a lot easier and better quality. Buy VHT Paint Nite Shades, Black 10 oz, Aerosol SP999 at Advance Auto Parts
The pros of tail light tinting:We all agree tinted taillights look great, but I want to know how dark are they when you hit the brakes ?
How much does tinting hinder the taillight brightness at night ?
As a former LEO, I sure as HELL don't trust other drivers BEHIND me! :nono:
Especially when they are texting, drinking, eating, smoking, reading a book, messing with the little dog on the lap....etc.... all at the SAME time! :heha:
I had the raxioms for like 3k miles and took them off. My chief complaint was that ugly rectangle reflection pattern in the outside lamp housing that is a complete mismatch to the other two. Other than that, they weren't really dark enough and scratched very easily.Have you looked into new tail lights altogether ? I have the raxioms and they are great.

It's not so much the idiot who rear-ends you, I'm more concerned with the lawyer/insurance company that refuse to pay for the damage by claiming your brake lights are not visible.Regardless of whether or not you tint your tails, you know there's always some F**** idiot who won't be watching you and will rear-end you one day.
How do clear/reverse lights look when spayed ?No tint will give you the professional look as a well done spray w/ clear.
1 thorough light coat and one medium-heavy coat of VHT
I too have the AM kit.I'll upload a pic this evening or tomorrow of one I shot in the morning in a Lowe's parking lot real quick.
They won't at all. I got out of my car Sunday evening and went around to the back w/ just the headlights on and I was really surprised that I couldn't really tell. Maybe 15% less light but it's not much at all. I bet if you ask anybody they wouldn't even know you had anything on the lights if they were on. Btw you will love the way they look in the day time and it only takes about 15-20 min to put them on :bigthumbsupI too have the AM kit.
I'm a bit reluctant to install them.....concerned they maybe too dark at night.
