Overpriced and in bad shape, plus, you'll need a silver CTS-V to use them, since the guy painted the eyelids and washers silver.

They look good IMO but I agree on them being in bad shape.

Why the F would anyone tint their headlights? Do people actually like not being able to see at night?

I tinted the set on my old car I had murdered out. All my lights were smoke and it sucked balls at night. Never again! I painted the trim black on the ones on this car and smoked the amber section of the fogs but not tinting the lense again! I think the tinted lense looks nice but not worth it to look slightly better but lose almost all of your lighting at night.

Wanna bet he got rearended because his blacked the FUCK out of his tailights and someone couldnt see him braking?

Put VERY bright tail light bulbs in.
Depends how you do it. My LGT had Lamin-x smoked filmon it. Darker but you could still make out the lights.

I won't even post a pic of mine. They're pretty dark. The ones on my old car were black. Told my guy to do these quite a bit lighter and they still came out dark. I mean you can still see em in the day ok and they are perfect at night but they are a little on the dark side.

I dont know who it is. But my boy had his TBSS tails done by a guyon their forum. Looked PAINT matched but let all the light through. Was badass looking.

That's bad ass! That's the same look mine have. All they do is mix black paint in some clearcoat and shoot the lense. Then they buff it out to that glossy shine where it looks black but is still transparent. Looks really good!

I want that on my 3rd brake light. but on a all black car. I liek a little red to break it up a little.
07-30-2012, 11:56 AM
I agree. I'd smoke your third brake light and reverse lights and leave just the side tails red. That's how my old car was done for awhile and it looked really nice.

Reverse are already tinted. but with VHT I think. Previous owner.

Yeah... Don't use that shit. Always seems to have a flat type finish to it. I like mine nice and glossy so when the light are illuminated, they don't look fuzzy at all from paint spray. Just clear but darker.

I use VHt night shade and did my friends and I cleared them look fresh and shiny but not removable
07-30-2012, 05:02 PM
Well maybe the difference is clearing over the VHT but the VHT alone leaves that dull flat finish on the lenses.

Yea it might be in the thickness of the coats tho I did thin on my v and it was dull then one thick and it got shiny ... But it faded being in the sun every day for 5 months and is kinda dull now but I feel like there is a way to make it glossy. I mean it is basically clear with a little black in it or it's just candy black either should be glossy with a full coat... I kinda wanna test this now
