hmm i like.. but i think only cuz its 4 door the lights on 2dr's like mine are huge ive thought bout doing it dark tints like yours or darker so you cant tell the paint or lense but idk the lights are huge n that bright red on the back of the coupes with the clear strip is really what sets it off

Thanks for the comment.
This tint is with black auto paint and clear. I'm not a proffesional body guy, but i'm pretty sure its permanent. Once the clear is cured you would have to sand it off and in doing that you would probably scratch the crap out of your lenses. Correct me if I'm wrong body guys.

that sounds about consistent with what i've heard on the mustangforums. i've crossed to the dark side lol, and i love it!!

i have a friend who actually tinted his lenses on his mustang, and they aren't coming off. i'll check with him and report back.

i used film on mine black on black mainly cuz i dont want to have to deal with having to scrape off the spray in the future plus it was alot easier to keep the clear part the same with the film by just cutting around...looks pretty nice...

not really.. gas or mineral spirits will take it off really easy if you just put it on, but your gonna have to rub more the more its been on

hmm i dont know the more i see the tails tinted the more i dont like it.. the light is soo red with the tint it almost looks dark purple.. if i did it i would do it professionally ive seen some BMW 330i's with tinted tails that the black kinda matches the shiny black color of the car but when you turn the lights on at night you can still see the light.. no clue how they do it but thats what i would do..
