Why plastidip and not VHT nite-shades? I had thought that the rubberized plastidip would block way too much of the light... a few coat of nite-shades and then some clear would darken the tails without making them too dark.. since niteshades is supposedly just a tint... Personally I like when people can see when my brakes are on.
haven't done tails on my truck yet, but this is what I had on the charger.. was nice and dark.. (colour matched the sides since I didn't care about the side lights at the back
but one really positive thing with plastidip is that it can be removed...
How much light are you letting through? It does look really good..
Hey man, Im a big fan of cheap mods and especially those I can change if I dont like. I went pretty light on the plasti dip and knew if I didnt like I could just peel right off. Didnt want to use the nighshades for that reason as it can be a pita to remove.
That's a real good job man, I especially like how well the reverse light cut outs came so clean. But I agree. I'd rather go with plasti-dip or tint for that rather than VHT as well.
Last time we used VHT on my buddies car and it came out way too dark that he got a ticket. Tried to take it off and it really didn't work out that great. It lightened up a lot but had a blue hue to them after and it was just a mess. With the dip or tint, removal is effortless.
