isnt candy apple the transparent RED? is it the kind in the little spray can from Testors. i think its just called black transparent or smoke or something. it does look dull in the pic
when i did my tint it got cold out...and rained the next day. so it never had a chance to fully dry correctly. its kinda messed up in places so i will probably end up re-doing it. i have a whole roll tho so its no biggie. i got it at advance autoparts...i think that chain has other names in other parts of the country. anyway the lightest i could find..30 or 35% it was like $9.99

i don't mean to knock on ur work but why did u go black? doesn't flow dude... it's just odd seeing black there... that's just my opinion... should have gone all red but i think matching the body colour is the best way to do it...

yup... should let it sit at least 24-48 hrs for the tints to cure... and if it rains, no go my friend... so pray it doesn't rain next time u do it

That's an old pic of my car. I have a black modulo front lip, 5% tint all around, blackhoused retrofits. So it fits quite well I blelieve. I plan on getting some dark rims with polished lip this summer.
