How To Spray Tint Your Taillights

I have a stupid question. Does it make your lights less bright? Like your brake lights less noticeable? I'm asking not criticizing.

Good question and the answer is yes. But bearing in mind, any moderate tint will be hardly any difference. I see people driving around with almost completely blacked out lights (not that I recommend doing it or even like that look) and I can still see them pretty clearly.

How come you didn’t choose to wrap it?

I feel more comfortable spraying. I can gradually darken it to my liking. Plus it was cheaper compared to good quality wrap.

I used this tint spray on a friend's car, I didn't sand before tinting and I dried each coat of tint using a hair dryer. Came out quite glossy without using clearcoat

Nice job mate. Similar to the headlight modification, this gives your car a more up to date look. LED daytime running light next?

Thanks. I would like to incorporate DRL’s into the actual headlights. It might not be too bad to do judging by what the insides of the front lights come apart like.

Don't forget to re-pierce the breathing/vent hole in the reverse section of the headlight

When you’re applying the last layer of clear coat with a rattle can, hold the can a little closer and spray a little slower to put a heavier coat on. The orange peel will be significantly reduced, if not gone altogether.

Uv doesn't oxidise things as it isn't oxygen.. Uv light bleaches colours and breaks down plastics. 😱

Torque Steer but you still see where I'm going with it.. They look good with that light tint. Keep them like that.

It wouldn’t be too hard to scuff it back up. Wouldn’t look OEM though ;)

Torque Steer to be honest, I like the scuffed look. I bet you that's the next fad!.

Haha I realised that when I edited it. The clear coat itself was meant to help with oxidisation πŸ˜‚ the uv protection is meant to be a bonus.

MiddleEasternGuy sort of, some plates can be mega expensive but it is because of how much people are willing to pay for it, not because they cost that much. All plates can be bought directly from the DVLA and mostly they cost Β£250. The ones that spell names and words etc are bought by dealers, reserved for auction and sold to the highest bidder, purely because they know the plate will be in high demand and can spin extra funds. The price isn't based on what letters are on it, or lack thereof. It is very possible to beat the dealers at buying the plates and earning a good living from it should you choose to. If you take a look at the uk dvla website you can look for plates and buy as many as you like, you will be issued a document to prove your legal ownership. You can only put one registration to one car and it is an Β£80 one time payable fee to do so each time you change it. The plate is registered to a person and not a vehicle so you can keep hold of the registration while it isn't on a vehicle but should you sell the vehicle while that registration is on it then you sell the rights to the plate too.

Kris Nicholson Ah, right I completely forgot UK rear plates are yellow, thank you for clarifying. I live across the pond in the US. I know some letter/number combos are extremely valuable based on what it spells out.

MiddleEasternGuy no. That plate is a show plate only and is illegal for use on UK roads and the rear plate must be yellow on prefix plates or black for old style.
