Re: Tinting Taillights

no there glued
youhave to break them you might be lucky if youve got a few spare sets but tinting your tail lights is a crappy idea as all it does is make them harder to see in shitty weather

Take your time and use a sharp knife.

After you've done the tinting, then glue back together. With these the police may hassle you!!

Re: Tinting Taillights

no its not that type of glue it melts the plastic together not just sticking them together the a stanley knife would be your best bet andtheres fat chance that you will be able to seperate the two peices cleanly without breaking/cracking one of them

Re: Tinting Taillights

spray them with some night shades. Its a tranparent paint. I did my xd tail lights a few years ago and they come up really well. You spray directly onto the outside of the light just make sure its super clean.
