Dipped and tinted my tail lights




Got bored and had 10 bucks so I played with my tail lights. Already had the red tinted a little but then I painted the whole inside black. Took about 3 hours and that was just from waiting for the glue to dry

Cut them open with my Dremel tool. I didn't really take many process pics figured it was pretty straight forward, if I do another set I'll do a write up.

The seal around the lense is what you're seeing. I taped off the area and painted the lense black so no you can't see it

Wasn't as careful as I should of been and nicked some edges with the Dremel tool and that's the white scrapes you're seeing.
