e39 Tinted Tail Lights with VHT nite-shades

Prepare the surfaceby removing any oil, grease or wax, then mask off surrounding areas to protect overspray.
I used VHT nite-shades spray tint.



Apply one light coat or just enough to change lens color.
let it dry for 1 hour before the next coat.



Second coat, DO NOT exceed more than 3 coats or light may not show through.


Cure completely in 24 hours, can be handled in 3 hours.


it looks sexy! ready to put it back on the car

People are still doing this? It was an unsafe thing to do in 2000 and still is today
