Is the color for the Lens on the inside, or outside? It looks too red still.
It looks like a lightly tinted taillight.

I know that, but would it be possible to diffuse some of the red from the inside by say
Sanding it down a bit?

Probably. I'm not going into that though haha. It was hard enough to push myself to bake the light 5 minutes after coming home from buying them

I think it looks decent, but like i said, if it we're me, i'd be sanding some of that red off a bit.

come to think of it, if you sanded it, it would turn into a faded whitish-pink color. the lens is dyed so the whole thing is red in that spot.

I'm thinking of doing this mod and then applying a light tint using the film Korey used on his tails and headlights

I think that stuff fell off of his lights but I'm not sure. that would probably be really cool tho. I have window tint somewhere but its 20 so its way too dark to just mess around with it

Edit: it hasn't fallen off. he says "it looks all shitty now"
