Question Tinting tail lights vs. Tail light covers

So I really like the blacked out tail lights on a t/a. But I dont know if I should buy a set and VHT them or buy the covers from ventshade.

I dont think I have the talent and patience to VHT a set of tail lights with out fucking them up lol. And I dont know how cheap the covers will be.


Suggestions? Comments?





And you know the drill!

Have them painted by someone who's done it. You can find a pretty reasonable price around here. I'm looking to do the GTOs tail lights.

VHT is easy to do. I have done many sets of tails. Wetsand, VHT, wetsand, clear, wetsand and buff out. DONE.

I think those tail light covers generally look terrible.

I was going to do mine but changed my mind because might get tickets or something.
