Hey, You've got some high flying friends man!!!

The car looks very good with that blackened eyes. I saw the light in the night too.

I thought it was masking paper. Hmmm... Just sunfilm??? Looks a professional job to me.

arrrre the tail lamps were not fully covered ,some parts of the tape were cut out (two small circles) to make the lamps visible.!!

You need either the tint spray(black+clear paint...thanks ashwin!)or the masking paper;not both.Just send a PM to "Psycho",he will do it for you..hopefully

I have been trying to get this done but no luck!

I went to my regular trusted accessories guy who SIMPLY REFUSED to put sun film over the tail lights.

First, the film will come off and secondly he said that the glue will stick harder on the tail lights due to the heat of the bulb and the blades to take it off will ruin it!

Perhaps, Psycho or someone can tell us exactly how much of what (technical terms) needs to be used so that we can try it out here?

No one even knows what masking paper is!!

Try it.Whats the fun otherwise.Experiment,2:4 should have a darker effect.A bottle of thinner would come in handy if you are experimenting yourself//

Hi Guys,

Have just imported the kit to colour your headlamp & tail lamp lens. Available in 4 colours( smoke, blue, green & violet). One kit is good enough for approx 3 cars front & rear.

Pm me for cost.
