Red tails

Does anybody know how to get this look... not sure if it's some sort of film overlaying the original light or different units all together? Anyway I think it looks sweet, much better than all clear LED imo. (pics are of mazda of america's tuned SEMA cars)

Thanks

I believe you have to email the vendor at [email protected] for any purchase inquires. There are a couple more cars on the forum that have these overlays..

Yep, pre-cut overlays. You may have to talk to the vendor about getting something made for the 2010's. If you looked at the mazda3 section, you may have noticed that there are no examples of products for newer gen.

Yo was that film, thick????
Cause i saw one car with this AMAZING thin layer of black over his taillights and it was actually amazing.... saw maybe a LITTLE TINNY millimeter wrinkle as it wrapped around the housing but not much at all cause it was nice and thin.

But my friend did his and literally the film was soo thick and there was huge wrinkles as it went around the housing. terrible..

Re: Red tails

CREAM, that looks great. I'm assuming you got it from DecalFX because I didn't see uncut strips available. What size and quantity did you order?

+1. It makes the 2nd gen models look so much better.
