Tint Taillight With Film? (2017 SXT)

Recommended Posts

How's it going y'all? I'm looking to add tint to my tail lights but I'm having some trouble as to which method (film or spray) 

 

The lights on the lift gate are nice & flat but the tail lights on the car itself have a nice curve to them. My question is, has anyone had success using film to tint the tail lights? If so how we're you able to get the film to lay over the tail lights, especially over the curve? I myself am a bit hesitant to use any kind of spray, I don't want to chance inconsistent coats.

Spray can be trickey and hard to get a perfect shade consistency and irreversible . Film is also tricky to work with for a first timer but shade is consistent and it’s removable in case you get in trouble with law enforcement. I recommend finding a local shop to tint those usually charge about 50-70 dollars per taillights.

The local tint shop I use ( Ontario Canada ) also uses the thicker film. Almost like a rubber and it looked great on another vehicle he showed me.When we had our headlight covers done it looked like you had to know what you were doing. Maybe not a job to tackle yourself ? Looks like your journey is begging for a little tint on its front windows too Ha Ha
