I think it would look better if it was tinted all the way across leaving the top clear and un-tinted.

Default I like that

harofreak00, I like taht photo of that car. Its simular color to mine and I am thinking of doing that as well, but actually tinting the entire tail lights, not just leaving part of it open.

Question, do the tails and center have to be entirely cleared to get this effect or can you tint the lenses without clearing them?

Would it be a different look with or without the clearing?

You need to tint all three pieces at the same time in order to get a perfect match. Make your final decision before starting. If the tint is uneven, it'll look like ***.

Especially true on lit areas. Spray all pieces at once.
