Tinting Taillights Red?

I want to tint some chrome altezzas red just like in this picture:
&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]">

I am also gonna match the side taillights with a clear jdm style all clear center piece.

Is it possible to tint them brighter and more metallic like the taillight color of the 2005 RSX?

i THINK (could quite possibly be wrong) that the 05 rsx has LED tails...which is why they're brighter then our halogen ones =/


but i'm interested in tinting my tail lights all red.....so i'm anxious to see what other people have to say

I want to use tinting film, but which method is better tinting or spraying? I want the actual taillights to be very metallic red and bright like the 05 rsx.

try tinting.....spray is too hard to get even. The coupe is alot easier to tint than the sedan because its flat. The best tint to use is oracal vinyl. A lot of guys with rsx's put the vinyl over the orange in the taillights. I don't know where you could get a sheet of that stuff though.
