Anyone tinted there Gen2 Tailights Red?

Was trying to find good images, and see if I should do my white skyactiv.


Few follow up questions, would the button used for locking nestled in the back right tailight would cause any issue?

Also was curious about pricing people have got.

And is it removable / how easy is it to get removed?

Ive painted mine red with VHT niteshades. process is real easy and its pretty hard to mess it up. i sanded and added 4 coats of niteshade and 4 coats of clear coat and this is the result



if you dont like the results you can always take it off with brake fluid and buff them back to shine.

also to answer your other question, the button used for locking in the taillight is not a issue, or at least it wasnt for me. once you undo the 3 nuts from the taillight it should slide out with a good pull. just dont force it too much or youll probably end up pushing the taillight back and scratching your paint.

Why does it look like your car changed colors?

BUT, I do like how you did those tail lights.
