Ways to Tint Your Head or Tail Lights


Recommended Posts

Not sure where to post this but I recently wrote a blog post


In short, I broke it down to the three possible ways to tint your lights (this assumes you think it's a good idea to do at all of course so I'm putting all legal and stylistic questions to the side):


1. Using sprays/paints

2. Using films

3. Using complete aftermarket replacements.


I go a little further in the post and discuss the benefits and disadvantages of each but since writing it I have been wondering if anyone has any other ways to achieving the same end. I mean, can you tint with Plasti-dip? I've never used the stuff so I don't know but I'm throwing this out there to get feedback and see if I've missed anything. Anyway, thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Don't have any experience with tinting exterior tail lights but can say that you should go for the most transparent option.   The tint can hinder visibility of your tail lamps which may compromise drive safety.  We get reports about this on a daily basis.  If you do opt to tint them, make sure you put a bright enough bulb to  help penetrate through it.  As for using plasti-dip, never seen this before so hoping somebody chimes in to hear about there experience.  Sounds very interesting....
