Hey, do you guys know anyone who has smoked their whole tail light like that (with spray tint). I don't like the Hella smoked tails, so I was going to spray tint the whole thing. Is it really hard to get an even coat?

I had a tint before a la Mercedes style, leaving the top portion unpainted. (where the brake light is).

I had 3 thin coats, then clear, buffed it out, another coat of tint, then last clear coat polished to the shits.

I love the Hella smoked tails though and you get more light through the Hella ones anyway. Reason? The plastic is designed to let the light through more one way then the other. Your Tint spray will imitate that effect, keyword (Imitate) as it will block the light from both sides.
