Yes sir. I like it when it is not crazy dark. I did the tail lamps today because the lights are easy to remove. When I get more times the reflectors will get done.I'm a big fan of this effect and will probably do it on all my future cars. I used a removable film instead of paint. You should do your reflectors on the bumper as well for consistency. Subtle effect, but huge improvement.
This. Normally not my thing, but in this case, it looks nice.Usually I am against tinting the tail lights since I think it cheapens the look and makes them look after market.
A big however on this one. I think it is because the car is red and the tail lights are a different shade and look funny. The slight darkening makes them almost look normal now. Have to do the lights in the bumper now.
It was professionally done. I oversee collision centers in philly and so. Jersey. It is high end ppg automotive clear coat. The trick is to add a couple of drops solvent base black tint. 2-3 passes after sanding the lights with 800 grit paper and that's the look you get.Could you provide us with the tinted clear coat product that you used. I assume a spray on product but please confirm. Thanks.
In my not so humble opinion I think it looks killer. I think Jag should've done something like this from the get go for R and S models. Just something subtle that would've made them a little more distinctive...I smoked mine too...light tint to keep it subtle.
