If you ever want to remove it; GOOF OFF works. Will not leave any trace or cloudiness

We bought some smoked film kits from tintmylights.com and used them for a car show. I took them off though, but they look sick and were better than that cheap film from ebay.

I tried that Night shade spray and had a hell of time taking it off. Why would you want to smoke your lights though? I think they'll look better stock. IMO

By spraying on it you can see smoke....its better to contact the authorised dealor who will guide you the right way and in right direction...

I used this guide to smoke my lights. They say to use "goo gone extreme" to take the vht spray off and let me tell you.. that crap works like a charm. I sprayed it on then waited 2-3 seconds then wipe away smoke layer of vht.

the site has two different tutorials. one professional finish tutorial that i wasnt about to touch.. so i went with the basic setup.. clean the lights.. spray away.. let dry.. bam. turned out pretty desc actually.

hey guys, where do i go to start my "welcome here" thread or watever.. this forum is setup a bit weird and i cant find it.. o well. ill make due

We tried metrodecals.com, rvinyl.com, and there film was NO GOOD!

Anyways we use http://www.xpinvinyls.com/ better quality, cheaper prices, and they have a better reputation here in southern california. We ran into them in many car shows and spoke with them a few times, they take care of a lot of car clubs, drift, drag, and motorcycle clubs.

For me it's about reputation, i won't spend my hard working money unless i see, test there product and here about what others have to say. So far 1 year and still holding strong on our lights! :)

well alot of you people do not know how to do it. the way everybody is saying is just to expensive. you can do it yourself and only spend 6 dollars. all you have to do is take out your tail light and tape down what you dont want painted. then get a paint call pactra and get the tint one. its only 6 dollars. then you just put a few coats of that on. then once its dry remove the tape. then put the light back on.
