pink? I have no idea what you're talking about, looks white to me. Honestly, I think the tailights are just fine how they are.

But, maybe this what you meant when you said tint, these pictures are from mQike's car:





Is that how you want them to look like?

i had it done at California Tint for $20... if you're good with blade, just go to walmart and get some tint film and apply it yourself..

mine was smoked limo tint..

do you think its hard to tint the inside of the ENTIRE tail light with no bubbles . . . ? Tinting is easier on a flat surface . . . but the taillight is curved . . . any suggestions? I kinda wanna do that.

So where would I go if I wanted to get my taillights sprayed? A tint shop or a body shop?

why would you want to spray it if you can easily just tint it yourself with a little bit of effort? i did a red tint on mine because i have a marino red.... don't get it sprayed and it's only 13$ at autozone for red tint....if you need specific instructions, you can pm me.
