Note the sun wasn't directly shining into the lights, but only slightly to the left of the truck.
With just the running lights on:
With the brakes applied:
Sorry for the sucky night shots...I still don't know how to use my wifes camera. These are just the running lights on, I had no one to push the brakes for me. Just know that they'll be brighter than this when applied.
Alright, so I wanted to get my stock taillights tinted and thought about the'ol NiteShade in the can job, but, I didn't want to fuck up my stockers with that crap. To make a long story short, I hooked up with the guy that did Brad's X-Runner, Mike. I contacted him and chatted through emails and a couple of phone calls. He gave me a price I couldn't refuse. After recieving pictures of the final product...I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. I told him once I get them back and installed, snap some good pictures of them and post them up, I'd see who else would be interested in getting them done.
As far as price goes, Mike told me that it would be better to get a nice group to want to do this at once.
These prices are for one set of lights (both taillights)
1 member = $45 for tinting the whole taillight - $80 to tape off reverse light - PLUS shipping both ways. 10+ members = $40 each (less depending on how many) tinting whole taillight - PLUS shipping both ways.
How dark or light you want it does not effect the price any. Straight forward price.
just got my pics back from mike.they look great i think.cant wait to get them on.but i have another idea with them before they go on..& disregard the line in the middle of the thrid brake light,he said it was a reflection in the garage.
just for your info on painting the trim.well first of all your truck is black so no sence in it.& second of all not to bad mouth mikes work because it looks great but when i maksed my tails after the tint process it peeled off in a few spots & now looks like shit..& it was painters tape & only on for one night.(the tape that is) & i did this about a month after i got them back.i dont think he scuffs them or use promoter so the tint doesnt stick that well.but id say just get them done & dont paint the trim.
i dont believe he does,the paint is mixed with clear & sprayed at once.but i could be wrong. but remind you im not bad mouthing his work but i do believe there is a few better ways he could prep them.i havnt had a chance to suggest it to him yet but i plan on it.
