Haha, be nice...it looks good. But, it's not my cup of tea. I'd rather smoke the insides of the headlights and tails. Especially if you have a 07 and have the bright shiny silver insides. But, it's your car and if it makes you happy. That's all that matters. See, at least I can't see what look like paint runs on your covers. The people around here are serious slackers. So, you did a quality job of it at least.

That looks pretty nice. At one point, I tinted my 07 tail lights with a "light smoke" tinted vinyl. The main thing I didn't like about mine (besides the backup lights being dim on really dark nights) was that they didn't cover the inner edges of the lights so you could still see a bit of chrome if you looked at the trunk from an angle, but it matched the emblems and the exhaust tip, so I guess it wasn't so bad after all

Yeah, I love the headlights!
Not sure if I'm sold on how dark the tails are tho. I had mine that dark on my 02 and ended up just throwing them away and buying 06 tails.

How far are you guys from our meet? I'd meet you guys from the north and cruise down if ya wanted.

boo-key bear did you paint the lense of the head light or did you take them apart and paint them inside? I'd love to get rid of the chrome or whatever it is in my head lights. I'm not so sure about taking them apart to paint them though.

Couldn't agree more. I'm gonna try having mine blasted at a pro shop this time around I think. I want my headlights like Adair's and getting the VHT to look good that thin is a true accomplishment. Thumbs up for the stand up job you did on yours Adair! They def look great!

Thanks! One of the guys in the body shop here at work told me you can just add black paint to clear and spray it in them. He said you can add as little or much as you want for your desired tint. Im no painter so i don't know if this is a good or bad method. I like that it wouldn't be coming from a rattle can. Anybody heard of or saw this?
