Nice! I was planning on the opposite: lightly tinting everything BUT the clear :)

LDub, can you post some pics of your tails tinted? ? ? I was never too interested in this til I had seen a new Maxima with them done. It looked so bad ass. Not sure if the Maximas have a reverse (clear section) but the one I had seen was all dark red.

Yeah! I used VHT Nightshade and just sprayed it without taking the lights off the car haha but I've done it twice, once on my first car that I smoked out all the way but you could still see a lot of light, and the second time I just did a nice medium coat because I didn't want it murdered out, haha

First car:


Second car: (it looks dark but it's really not, it looks more of a darker cherry red)

Thanks for the pics! The second car/ bottom pic looks lighter than the 1st car came out. Maybe cuz it's outside and not inside? ? ? You left the reverse cut-out on both, do you know if the reverse would be noticeable at all with the full light covered? I'm assuming you would be able to see it more if the reverse lights were actually on, but just curious if it looks all one color with an all red covering.

The second car I did a little lighter, I didn't want it all blacked out, and I really think the reverse light cutout works but I have 5% tint on my back windows anyways so I hardly notice the extra light anyways:p
