bird took a dump twice on the hood so its not a paint blemish lol. video
was taken on a cold start
Plastidip Taillight Tint Stencil Diy
Here are the answers to most of your questions....
1. Will it come off?
No it's not permanent but YES it is resilient. I had it on my lights for
months with out it getting scratched or peeling.
2. Is this regular or smoke Plastidip
It is regular. I do say this in the video, however I should have put it in
the description. Sorry for the confusion.
3. Is that Forza Music? What kind of car is that?
Yes it is! :) Makes for great ambient music. Also, it's a BMW 335xi. It's
my winter car. (thus the whole "it's cold right now" in the video)
4. Yes it IS illegal.
At least where I live. HOWEVER, no I didn't get pulled over once for it. I
got pulled over for speeding and the cop didn't even mention it. I really
think it just depends on the cop that is behind you and how he feels about
5. isn't it too dark? Aren't you worried about people not being able to see
your lights when you brake? etc.
No, in the video they might look KIND OF dim, but in person the light
output was barely changed. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean that it wont be on
your car. It depends on what kind of bulbs you have, HOW MANY COATS YOU
DID, and just in general how nice your lights are. Either way, it was not
an issue with me and not once did I get the impression that someone
couldn't see them. Plastidip IS very transparent if you do a few light
coats... you literally JUST watched proof that it is... lol
6. Why didn't you use film? or why didn't you use "night shade"?
First off, I didn't use night shade because until I read these comments I
hadn't ever heard of it.
Second, I didn't use film because the other sets of film that i've used
either didn't fit right, were a pain to take off, peeled up on the edges,
and were much more expensive than this DIY.
7. Why did you use masking tape instead of electrical tape, duct tape etc.
Because masking tape leaves ZERO residue. Duct tape and electrical tape can
both leave lots of residue. As I stated in the Video though, you can always
use flexible nylon/ straight line tape I believe for round edges.
8. Why didn't you just mask everything BUT the clear part then blah blah
really?... mask the part that I WANTED to paint?....
A. that would have taken forever
B. it would have used WAY more paint.
C. I would NEVER mask everything then use a razor on my tail lights....
thats just silly.
9. What was the point of the "press and seal"
The point of that was to show you another way that I had seen it done. I
then went on to say how I do not reccomend it cause you would get garbage
10. How many coats did you do?
If you watch the video I technically did 1 coat. it was a thick coat but I
did that because I knew I wasn't going to be laying it on to the point that
it was not transparent. you will have to be the judge on how many
coats/passes you do. Good news is, if you put on too much, or too little,
no worries! It's plastidip and it'll come right off! Than do it again!
11. Could you do this on your headlights?
I guess you could... although I could see that being a much easier way to
get pulled over. But really, it's worth a try. Worst case is you tell the
cop that pulls you over that you didn't realize it was illegal and ask him
if he'll give you the opportunity to peel it off on the spot.
12. Do you feel the edges with your hands?
You can if you rub your hand over it, but it's very faint. And no it did
not make it peel.
Really at the end of the day, Like I said in the video. Its not everyones
style. It's non permanent, it's SUPER cheap, and most of all THIS MAINLY
WAS A TEST AND A GUIDE ON HOW TO STENCIL YOUR TAIL LIGHTS not REALLY how to
plastidip your lights. So use whatever product you want. I just used
regular dip cause I had some lying around from doing window trim.
And like most mods to your car, you're doing this at your own discretion,
so be safe and use common sense. if you "black out" your lights, you may be
running the risk of accident. So only go to the point that they are still
Thanks for all the thumbs up, and all the kind comments. Hopefully this
answered most of your questions.

In this short video we'll show you how easy it really is... How to smoke
tail lights yourself.
Basically, all you have to do is sand your plastic lenses with 1500-2000
grit sand paper. Preferably wet sand.
You'd just get a better cut with wet sanding. Now, some say you need a
adhesive promoter... I think it's a bunch of crap. As long as you sand your
lens, you wont need it.

out in the elements.
So far I've had to replace the carb, gas tank, fuel filter, fuel pump,
batteries, vacuum lines, internal vent fan, both door poppers, drivers side
window, Exhaust, ect. I still have
bunch of work. I'm sure if you can see it or not, but the inspection
sticker on the window is 2004. I'm also looking for advice on a front bag
setup to replace mine and some some good wheels.

slowing down your sequential tail lights
watch as i show you how to slow down the sequential turn signals on a 2003
ford Mustang for under
$2.00 and with simple tools and not a lot of time. take apart the stock
turn flasher and replace the 3.3uF 50v electrolytic capacitor with a 4.7uF
35WVDC Max capacitor from radio shack for about $1.50. make sure to use
solder for a more reliable conection. this will slow the flash rate down
dramaticly and get your pony's tail lights noticed!!
