i have silverstar up front, not sure whats in the back never taken apart my tail lights except for the 3rd one in the back window.

My back up lights are molded into the tailight assembly, so I dont think the tint film will work to well, im afraid water might seep into the film if i cut out where the white is.

I ordered an Rvinyl kit with all of the installation fluids and tools, read the instructions three times, and installed it today. It looked horrendous. The film was ruffled on the edges, and the film vaned and scratched in the middle. I didn't bother installing it on the other tail light; I tore it off and had my credit card company reverse the charge.

I'm definitely going to try the tinting spray next time. If a cop doesn't like it, I'll just bite the bullet and buy a new set of lights.

On the plus side, my tail lights are very, very clean.
