How did you get such sharp edges if it was spray tint?


We taped it off around the only area that emits light. And the black isn't technically tint. It's PPG gloss black paint with clear coat I believe. I didn't want the light shining around the edges. It's a crisp, clear cutoff. I'll have to get some good night pictures. With the LED taillights installed, it's BRIGHT!

OH, so you sanded ALL of the tint off and just painted. It was my understanding that you just sanded those areas bonk

No you're correct. I guess I should have specified that my previous "Tint" was in fact a coat of "black paint" as well. I didn't know this at first and thought that too many coats of tint were applied. My current body man revealed this to me as we were sanding it off. While my lights were still clearly visible at evening and night, they were VERY hard to see during the daytime. That definitely explained why.
