Question TINTING rear lights!

has anyone tinted the inside of their lights? just wondering coz ive done mine on the outside but its come out in a matt finish, but dunno if i spray the inside if itll look gloss, plus will the heat from the bulbs affect the spray?

Re: TINTING rear lights!

if you want a glossy finish then spray after with a clear laquer?

Re: TINTING rear lights!

the best thing to do is to mix a small amount of black paint with some laquer, give the lights a light rub down with p800 then some plastic primer(this stuff is clear) then the laquer you mixed earlier, it'll come out really shiney then.,.,,

cheers!! gonna try it i reckon, if it dont work then ill take it off! as to ur Q bout the side strips, yeh theyre stuck of with sticky pads, it u use a hairdryer to heat them up and then peel of the strips SLOWLY then there will be less residue to remove!!
