Tinting your rear lights (for Will)

Post by DanHam on Mon Mar 29, 2010 4:27 pm

What you will need to start with...


1 coat...


2 coats...


4 coats... (note I missed out 3 Mad )


Dried (matt finish)


Weren't dark enough for me so I put a couple more coats on them.

Go over them with T-Cut.

After laquer #2...


Then leave them to harden for a few days then flat it back.

On the car...


Shit pics, I need a decent camera.

Ensure you work in a dust free area (that was very hard for me considering the building conditions atm).
Light coats only (build it up) 15 mins between each coat I did.
Mask up the reflector or MOT fail and police moan.

ANOTHER POINT!

MAKE SURE YOU WASH THE MASKING TAPE RESIDUE OFF REALLY WELL, i DIDN'T ON ONE, IT REACTED WITH THE LAQUER AND FUCKED UP....NEW LIGHT FROM EBAY.

Do it with a sponge then dry it Wink

You have to take them out to do it Wink Best to do them while they're its off mate. Spend the whole day doing it for a good job. The lights are easy to take out. Just 3 8mm's IIRC.

Might have to tint the megane lights lol.



Dan, have rid of that rear wiper mate, will look way better imo. It's won't be an MOT fail either as the rear wiper dosn't even come into it....
