LOL it's addictive. Like i said i got 20% which is what they consider "blacked out" and when the lights are on as you can see even in daylight they show thru just fine.

looks good, i did the same with mine and used the blackout tints from autobadges (paid too much for them) but theyve lasted with no peeling at all through 2 chicago winters so far.

these tints are super easy to apply, like he said, just takes some patience to get it in the right spot.

Yeah these are surprisingly pretty good quality vinyl tint. It's pretty thick. And the good thing bout the particular kit i got is, they're reusable. Meaning if you get trash under them while you're installing, they begin peeling for any reason, etc. you can just peel em off, clean them and your taillights, rewet everything with soapy water and start all over Either way, for bout 20 bucks all said and done, you can't beat it.

Wow that's kinda expensive Death. Basically an extra 60 bucks just for the 3rd brake light and two lil tiny side marker tints??? Seriously man? LOL And personally, i wouldn't tint the side markers, mainly because they're not lights. They're reflectors, and I dunno bout Texas, but here in Georgia, it's illegal. At least with the tinted lights when they're lit you can still see red.

True, whenever i think about it in comparison its a bit much. I mostly like the tail light and 3rd brake light tint. However i do wanna find who sells those V6 emblems into the GT shape for the honeycomb decklid. :*(

Lol, yea i believe 15% is. My brother has that on his GT and when we went to the tint guy he said 15% was most legal limit he could go. Although i believe you can go as dark as you want on the rear window(Up to 5% i believe).

**** that. Thats just too dark. I had 2% on my old pickup and yeah it looked cool, but at night i couldn't see **** out of my windows. I had to roll my windows down just to make turns and whatnot. It was horrible. Honestly, even with 20% on my car now sometimes at night, its hard to see to make turns.

Holy **** 2%! **** that indeed. Im not gunna go 5% on my back, again sure it looks cool but its impractical. 15% is nice at night and day. The guy my brother took his to did it for around 210$ but damn did he do a nice job. Also i think he has a lifetime warranty. Not sure but ill end up taking mine to him.

Well post up some pics when ya get it done. I honestly need to have my whole car retinted. The shop that did it isn't the place i normally take my vehicles to, but i really wanted my windows tinted, and the place i normally go to was booked solid for like 2 weeks.

Well when i get ready to get mine redone, i'll for sure take it to my normal shop. Every vehicle they've ever tinted of mine, they done an OUTSTANDING job, not a single bit of trash anywhere under any of the tint, perfect cuts, no bubbles, wrinkles, anything. I shoulda just waited to let them do it to begin with.
