Tint looks pretty good, hope those blackouts don't get you pulled over too much.

i am 99% sure light still reflects off of the reflectors in his tails. my car has black sprayed side reflectors (normal black spray paint lol) and then still reflect too!

very nice job! i am extremely impressed. i love the complete black out of the tails and the infamous bar <major OEM style flaw imo) why did u use? normal tint? or the vht.

thanks

Thanks for the compliments guys.... well about the tint and spray...
For tails i used "wet" transparent Window Tint spray purchased from a local tint-shop for $16 (u can also use one that sells at Hobby Town for about $4-5) but i would recomend using night-shades simply because it takes A LOT less time and is easier to apply because it's what they say a dry spray type. Even though you can't really see it unless you look for it, the tint spray run. I thought i was finished after 2 layers of spray... picked it up to see it outside "A BIG MISTAKE" should've left there for at least 3-4 hours, and saw it running so i had to re-spray. Unded up with 4 layers of tint (didn't mean to) that's why it is so black... and NO it doesn't reflect :rolleyes: and COPS didn't even pay attention to it today... Funny i saw 4 cops on my way home from work (yes they cops are like flies in Lincoln a lot of them) and none of them pulled me over :) My cousin tried the black tails on his bimmer first
(aftermarket tails) so far for 8 month cops don't bother to stop him, so thought why not?
for the windows i used Limo dark (20%) Charcoal Gray color Insta-cling tint (Axius company) which i purchased from wal-mart for about $13 of roll. I used 3 rolls of it, lots of leftovers. A good thing about this tint is that it's removable and reusable, roll it back during the winter and put it back again next spring. But it is darker than a normal 20% tint since the material is different.
The whole thing went for under $100 (originally i wanted the shop do it for me, but they asked for more than what i was expecting to pay so i just did it myself, and i like it 2)
If you have any "how to" questions, i'll be glad to answer. :thumbup:

140? yep it's all stock, why did it surprise you?
I'm still thinking about putting a CAI and an exhaust (if i don't go to my homecountry this summer)
p.s.
about the reflection again, as you saw the pictures where taken at night so on some of the i had to use the flash and it didn't reflect a bit.

I forgot to mention that i used 2 layers of Clear Coat, so the tint won't wash away or get messed up. Plus it's shiny :cool:
