Thumbs up Pics of my tinted tails

Hey whats going on guys, bored as anything today so i got off my lazy butt and did something on my truck today..as I first started it began to snow...Go figure! But I just did it anyway..I hanked off the tails and that light on the cab. Cleaned them down with some Mineral spirits and layed down 2 coats of spray tint. after that I throw on a coat of clear. Turned out alright..i bet if I took my time it would have been better. Fumes were getting to me though and my parents got mad because I painted in the basement. Alright well here are some pics and I also took a pic of my Isspro gauges and a picture of what the inside of my bed looked like after I pulled the tail light out. I actually had to drive around for about a week or so without a tailpipe and tip because the exhaust that I got sent me the wrong hanger with it. I took a few pics, I will get some better ones when I get some light like tomorrow or sat. Let me know what you guys think and if anyone wants to get some of this tint let me know I can get you guys some. Thanks and enjoy

I used a product called Pactra its actually for RC cars to tint the windows. It works great and is super cheap..i used it on my other car and a few friends of mine have done it as well. doesn't crack or anything.
The isspro gauges are AWESOME, I love them and yeah they match pretty good.
