Lets see those VHT nite shade tint jobs

Doesn;t matter what you tinted but you gotta put up pics. Nite nime pics lit up would be a bonus.
Just state how many coats you applied and if its cleared or not on top.
I think it would be a good comparison for people thinking of doing it including myself.

Mirror lenses, amber lens in head lights, Ford emblem:



Tail lights, upper cab light, Ford emblem:



I have no idea how many coats I put on(probably 3-4). I just sprayed until they were dark then I put a couple coats of clear over everything.

I don't have any night shots.

I don't have a pic of it but on the truck I just sold, I did the Ford emblem and it turned out pretty sharp. A little to purple but it still looked good.

The emblem was actaully an accident that turned out pretty nice.

I assume you can get the nightshades stuff from any auto parts store. I've bought it from O'Reily's and Autozone. It shouldn't be too hard to find. I think I've even heard of people buying it from Walmart.

Re: Lets see those VHT nite shade tint jobs

I have pictures, but photobuckets is having issues at the moment. I did my tail, 3rd brake and mirrors with nite shades, but ended up having them redone by a shop. They came out pretty good with the nite shades, but had a slight orange peel texture to them when you got up really close. I'm very particular and wanted a smooth finish. No matter how many times I wet sanded and cleared over the texture would still show up. It cost me $40 to have them all done by a gun. IMO what it will cost you in supplies plus your time you're better off having them sprayed with a gun.
