Tail light tinting

Hey ive been looking to tint the tail lights on my 2013 civic lx sedan with overlays but im not sure how dark i want to get them. I was wondering if anyone who has tinted their tail lights with overlays can post pictures and say how dark they got them so i can figure out what percentage of tint to get. Also can you mention where you bought them from and for how much? Thanks

Which tail light tint should I use?

Hey guys so I'm new to this forum and I just got a black 2012 Honda Civic coupe Ex and I just wanted to do a few simple mods to it like tinted windows, plastidip rims, and smoked out tail lights. For the tail light light tint I want to use a precut tint film and I was just wondering if any of you had any history of installing one and if it was easy and how it came out.


Thanks in advance!

I saw some pretty good examples, I noticed a lot of people used VHT Nite Shades but I'm not really a fan of the spray because if I wanna take if off because of the cops or when I eventually decide to sell the car it's going to be much easier to take of overlays then to get ride of the spray. I'm definitely eager to see how yours is going to come out because I heard its hard to install it yourself because of the complex curves and the tint shops near me only install it using VHT or plastidip so def lemme know, thanks!

I did this to mine. Pretty sure it's against the law, but no one's said anything.
Taillight tint IS against the law. Why would you want to make your car more difficult to see? I understand that you want to make your car look 'cool' but you will also be making yourself more susceptible to getting rear-ended....and you may be at fault for it if others can't see your tails brightly enough.

I forgot to answer the OP's questions: None.

It doesn't cover the red area so it doesn't reduce visibility.

So than you only tinted the reverse lights? BTW I agree with Cube I never liked the look or understood the idea of tinting ones taillights.

I reached my own a couple of times. Got two kids to show for it. Now for tint, make sure you use one that will get the attention of the most LEO's. That way the rest of us can drive like we normally do while you're on the side of the road holding your license and registration.
