Well there you guys have it, I decided to smoke my tail lights. Here is a picture for comparison. More pics to come tomorrow (maybe)!

Brake Light (nothing else)


Turn Signal (nothing else)

That looks awesome.

I don't know which way to go though. One guy here used Niteshades and said it's been 2 years without incident. It's cheaper, and RockBlocker seems more of a hassle to apply.

I love the tint on red, it gives it a little shade of red.

Re: BoostThat3 Smoked his Red Tails!? WHAT?

I thought about NiteShades, as they have a whole supply at a store near me. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought RockBlocker (or any other film) is more practical because if you had to for any reason (if you didn't like it, or was told to take the tint off by a Gov't Official) had to take the tint off.. it would be easier to remove the film than paying $200 for a new set of tail lights. One more thing, this film is really thick and it is higher quality than that NiteShades spray. Of course, you would clear coat the tails after the Niteshades. But I found out that if you are not a professional spray-painter that you will find a way to mess up. There's more room for messup with spray vs. film. I might actually redo my tails sooner or later with the Oracal film, so that I can wrap the whole lens.
