Night shade makes a spray on tint for any car. what you do i * you spray the taillights wait for dry repeat then add some gloss and clear coat. my ? is has anyone done this and how did you get your taillights off. i dont want to tape my whole car i would much rather remove all the lenses. BTW i have a 99 soi dont know how to take out the middle piece attached to the trunk.

thanks,
mike


btw: I most likely will be doing this mod even if i have to tape my whole car but not untill summer.

hey buddy

I have replaced my taillights before. Just pull the carpet away on the interior of your trunk and there should be some bolts and nuts looking right at you. My car has 3 per light fixture. Not sure what the 96-99 have.

I've done mine....But I used a different product though....Liquid Tint.
Check out my pics of my 92 SE at Bonneville Intensity. I've got before & after pics.

VERY simple mod.. Took me a half hour maybe. I did 7 coats of Nightshades, and 3-4 coats of clearcoat. Pics are on my site Http://bonneville.flconveyors.com if you scroll down the page under the Exterior section, and then "New Tinted Taillights".

Any questions, just ask.
