    ive used it on other cars and as long as you clean the lenses and masks things off it ok, can be done without removing the back lights but for best results takee them off and put on a level surface. Take your time and it will be fine but remenber to be legal you need a red reflector on the rear

    Why not buy a sheet of lamin-x to do your rear light? I've never done this mod (spray tint) but from the cars I've seen who have done it. IMO I didn't think it looked good at all, if anything thought it ruined the car as it makes them really really dark and not oem. I'd just buy lamin-x then if I don't like it take it off. As the spray you will need a new light

    I should have said Lamin-x, probably the best alternative to buying a new set of rear lights. Easier to apply than spraying and the finish will be much better.

    Lamin-x is quite easy to use, there was a thread a few weeks ago on how to fit it. And the reflector questions dont know but im guessing so lol
