Is it possible to tint the tails instead of sing VHT?

yes. i think all of us had them that way before we upgraded to paint/vht.

tint looks cloudy and not as good as correctly painted tails.

Guess I was spacey...sometimes my mind floats. It's the artist thing. I decided to go crazy and just do the VHT...so far so good.

sandpaper is your friend. it erases paint... then start over.

ok.. i have done my tails twice... I used Goff off to strip the VHT off the tails and it worked fine.. then just did the same wet sand / clear coat steps to get them back to stock. just rub the goff off in a bit and it comes right off.

how scratched? if its not deep just step down in sandpaper till its smooth. paint will fix the cloudiness, clear coat does wonders.

I tried it again and they still suck. Had to put them back on because I need to drive today. I'm just not getting it. I did find a guy on Ebay that sends you some shipped for $200 and gives you $70 back if you send him yours.

I don't know what I should do. The ones I have are expensive LED's. I'm a figgin idiot!
