Default Tinting tails, fogs, & heads

Mk I'm curious to know what all the peeps use on the forum to tint their tail lights, fog lights, 3rd brake light & headlights. Sam here on the forum referred me to this stuff...
VHT NITE-SHADES™ and VHT QUICK COAT™ CLEAR COAT
But I'm curious to know what other products there are out there that are good. Thanks for the help!

Oh & if anyone could PM me on how exactly they tinted their heads, etc that would be highly appreciated

I used this stuff from autozone... It came out horrible. But i hear good things about VHT. Most important thing is patients. If you try to cover the whole lens in one coat, you will have drips and it will look dumb when your lights come on. Personally id spend the extra money and use film to tint your lights.

Ive used the VHT nite shades on a couple of my cars and cleared over top of them and it turned out nice. I dont suggest you use it on the headlights it gives the clear plastic a greenish tint when the lights are on.

oh man really? we were thinking about just lightly tinting them bcuz he doesnt have HIDs or silverstars that are strong enough to get through the tint. what would you use on the headlights? i just wanna make sure they're all shiny & all too

PM Younggunls1 and have him ship you his awesome tint mix for tails and headlights/fogs. It will cost more than VHT, but it will be a better result if applied properly.

I agree, I've seen a lot of tint jobs gone wrong, and I'm not a fan if 99% of the tint jobs out there. From what I've seen youngguns tint jobs though, they all looked GREAT. With a nice car like yours, you don't want to ruin it with a cheap tint job.
