FS: Custom Blacked Tail Lights - IN

Very glossy, look great. Very Dark. Buyer will be advised to purchase LEDs for brakes so they shine through well. You can see tail lights but it's somewhat dim.

Off of a 2003 ranger tremor stepside. Tail light are supposedly the same between truck beds. $125 obo.

Pm w questions.

Also, they suck at painting with niteshades. Mine look just as glossy as his that didn't use VHT niteshades. The only way niteshades looks that bad is if you do several light coats. You need to keep spraying until it's wet. Takes awhile to master. My new LED tails are VHT niteshaded and are flawless.

Yep I have painted many and done well. There's a few tricks though. The runs are certainly an issue!

before i did my lights i watched a "how to" video to see if there is anything special and the guy listed like 15 steps. when i did mine all i did was
1. pull my tail lights out of my truck
2. clean off with windex
3. spray on 3-4 light coats of the vht nightshade
4. let dry for 2-3 hours just in case
5. put back in truck

in my experience, light coats lay on dull and matte.

I do two thick coats, or one thick coat. Runs become an issue but if you mess up you can quickly remove the VHT you sprayed with windex and a towel if you catch it quick enough. They lay much glossier if you do thick coats. I've painted 10+ sets with thick coats, all look A1, and 20+ in thin coats, I'd say 1 in 5 come out well. That may just be me.

i have had it turn out flat and glossy. The two rangers I have done have both turned out glossy through the light coats except for the third brake light. I have done it on an s-10 with doing the same methods and it has turned out flat. i think it all depends on the texture of the tail lights and also how well you prep the lights before you spray em'
