DIY: Smoke / Tint your Taillights
How to smoke or tint your taillights yourself for less then 10 dollars! Make them look dark. If you do it correctly, your tail lights will look dark and reflective. The outcome can look as good as if it was OEM. Materials: 1 x Black Spray paint (Enamel for a shine finish) 2 x Sheets of 1000 grit sand paper. Wet or Dry. We will use it for wet sanding 1 x Sponge to clean tail light 1 x Bucket to be dipping the sand paper Steps: 1) Clean the Tail Light to prepare the surface 2) Wet sand with the 1000 grit sandpaper in one direction 3) Spray the light evenly with the black paint. 4) Spray the clear coat 5) Polish 6) Wax ProTip: Do not touch the tail light with your fingers once you have sanded. The paint will not grab to the parts that your finger might touch. There is headlight/taillight tint film available now. You can search for it on eBay. Ill try and buy some soon and make an install video of it, but for now you can use paint :). You can remove it by sanding it anyways, I don't know about the film though. (WARNING) The lights look fairly close to original at night but during the day, the brake lights will be significantly harder to see when painted with a second coat. Be mindful when tinting the tail lights. (2nd WARNING) This is illegal in many states. Check your state law. Sorry... I said headlights a few times at the beginning. I clearly meant tail light.

This is a video on how I blacked out my tail lights, tinted them with Rustoleum Lens Tint
Plasti Dip Tinting Tail Lights
In this video I used a viewer suggestion to tint my tail lights. The finished result looked good, but the desired result was not achieved. The next time I attempt this it will be with self thinned matte clear as a base. Hopefully I will get better results. This video was done with one 11 oz can of Plasti Dip Glossifier; one can of Plasti Dip Black; and one can of Plasti Dip Yellow. When thinning your own Plasti Dip be sure to use 1 gallon of thinner (Xylene, Toluene, or VM&P) for every gallon of un-thinned Plasti Dip you use. In all my videos I use un-thinned Plasti Dip as an alternative to pre-thinned RDS(Rubber Dip Sprayable). I think the added pigments in RDS are great which is why I add pigments to my own Plasti Dip jobs, but I am able to save between $70-$100 per job by thinning Plasti Dip myself. For full details please visit my web site http://www.iamthepuzzleman.com Drop by my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/IamThePuzzleMan Keep in mind I do not sell Plasti Dip or their products. This is simply a how to video, and my web site is simple instructions of how to Plasti Dip your car, truck, or SUV at the lowest cost that I have found.
