Well, today i blacked out my tailights on my '99 AV6 ex sedan. All in all, i think it looks pretty good, i took my time and i'm kinda a perfectionist :p with my car. Heres a link to some pics i took today during the process. If anyone has any questions, just post or PM me :D . Please give me some opinions!! Thanks!

I got the paint at this store in the mall here called Hungates, its just a regular model/hobby store. The paint is "Model Master Transparent Black Window Tint" and "Model Master Clear Top Coat". I got two 3oz. cans of the tint, and one 3oz. can of the clearcoat. Each can was like 4.50 or something like that. If u have any more ?'s just let me know.

yea... i agree do the outer ones and it'll look better

so you didn't hafta heat it up and open it up and paint the inside hmm? just the outside? interesting... wouldn't the paint have a slight affect on the light output, and make the lighting a bit darker even tho its transparent window tint?

and that candy apple red sounds good, is there such thing as transparent candle apple red paint?

did you sand the taillights and apply adhesive promoter for plastic or did you just spray over them just a question and what kind of paint did you use

slEepinAkk0rd - Yea i jsut took the taillights off and painted the outside of them, and Yes it does affect the light output but if you dont put too much tint on, the light output is about the same as stock, the more tint u put on the less light comes through...

chapin - I didnt do any sanding, just cleaned the taillights with 409 and then just went at painting them. As for what paint i used, look at post number 6 in this thread.
