VHT nite shades paint. It comes in a rattle can. Lightly sand and prep your tails and do a few light coats of the VHT on them.

If you've ever painted before than you shoot a very fine layer of black paint, followed by a clear coat mixed with a very faint amount of BLACK paint.... end conclusion :





Daystar Leveling kit, Pro Comp Wheels, Pro Comp Xtreme A/T 33" Tires
Fx4 Painted Grill upgrade, F&R Bumpers Sprayed With Line-X, Color Matched Headlights, Hi/Lo & Fog True Bliss H.I.D's, Train Horns + Freightliner Horn, Custom True Bliss Floor Mats, 5% Side/back & 50% windshield tint

BTW when I said shoot the paint, clear etc... shoot with an HVLP (high volume low pressure) with a 1.2 tip for the paint and 1.4 for clear.... we only use DuPont products at our shop... hope this helps! if you have any other Q's PM me... btw the rattle cans never come out looking 100% just an FYI... always look kinda hazy...

just go to a body shop and pay them... it will be worlds better than that VHT crap... I offer the service and I promise them to be perfect but you will have shipping and a core charge (if you dont send a set to me before doing the work)

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned
