Here are mine with the VNT tinting. But I went a different approach in the tinting. First I water sanded the tail light with 1000 grit sand paper. then used a nice surface prep cleaner. I then applied 3 coats of tint. I gave it about a day to dry then water sanded it again and applied one last coat of tint. Then I applied 3 coats clear. the same clear I use on the body when painting the car! I give that a couple of days to dry then water sand it and buff it out! You can't tell that it is painted! it just looks like it came from the factory that way!!

I did night spray on my ram, did 4 coats, and even though they are pretty dark, you can still see the light shine threw them weather it is day or night, ( had my buddy drive my truck while I was following in a different vehicle, to make sure you can see them ) I also did check with a sheriff in my county before doing them
