Tinted the tails

Tinted the tails in the 95. Not huge on the yellow part of the taillights but not motivated enough to pick up and do the swap to later style. Used VHT. Turned them pretty dark, but looks pretty good to me.




It's like ***** cold outside and I just did these in the shop. Not interested in stabbing them in the truck just to get frostbite lol.

LOL. I hated mine on the 99. I couldn't find VHT at the time locally so I didn't bother. Was a broke *** highschool kid.

I'd like to see how they look installed and lit up too. Does the tint block a lot of light coming through? and you'll have to excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is VHT?

Looks a bit dark, but they should look sweet on the truck!

Sorry folk, been having computer problems. I thought they got it figured out with windows 7, guess not LOL...

I did 3 coats. I did the first, went hey this looks kind of raspberry. Did the second and said hm, not to bad, did the third and it went like black.. lol. Heres belated pic that sucks. It lights up fine. VHT is a spray tint, as soon as light hits it, the light shines right through. Tommorow should be a better day with decent weather, hopefully. Its non stop poured the last week
