    Smoked Tail Lights

    I was looking into getting this for my Veloster and just wanted to know if anyone has done it yet. I would really like to see how it turned out. I would go with the light smoke, here is a link to a place I found with the film.

    HOLY CRAP thats expensive! Get it where i got mine from 401 GRAPHICS Its only $10 a foot. Also the pre-cut stuff is hard to use cuz it you dont line it up perfect then you will have problems, buying the sheets are beter cuz you can just trim after you applied.
    Heres some pics of mine that i just put on tonight.

    I was thinking the same thing about the precut and that's probably why its so expensive cuz its precut. So the tint on yours is the only shade they have at 401 right? Is it high gloss its hard to tell in the pic. How visible are the lights? It looks really good thought I think ill just go that dark. Thanks for the link.

    Forgot to ask one more thing how much did you get to do the lights and reflectors.

    Yea they only have one shade of the smoke (they have other colors also Hyper blue, Yellow, Red, Purple, and pink). The smoke is not too dark, you can still see red when the lights are off. I would say it is around 35% tint. It is glossy. You can see all the lights light up fine at night and during the day.
    I'll be tinting every light, I think i got 10 feet just to be safe (plus they offer free shipping if you spend $100 or more). I was able to use scrap pieces that were trimmed off the tail lights to do the reflectors. I still haven't done the headlights yet.
    The sheet comes in one piece when you order. so you just cut to the size you need.
    What i love about their tint film was that when you heat it up it looks like new again. Because i accidentally made a few bad creases in it when squeegeeing it on, so i pulled it back up off the light a bit put some heat on it and the crease came right out.

    At the site I linked you can get a 24x24 for 14.99. 401 wants $10 for a 14x12. so yea its cheaper at Rvinyl.com plus free shipping on orders over 49.99.

    Hmmm... So I know 401 graphics does price matching (says it on top of their web site). So I called 401 (Talked to Meghan) I told her about rvinyl's prices, she said that she would give me, and anybody else on this forum 50% off anything on the site (except apparel), plus free shipping on orders over $50
    However you have to place your order over the phone to get this deal. 401-404-5300

    PS. I asked if they would be offering any kind of Veloster decals, or shirts and stuff. They said that they would add them to the site soon

    I just picked this up for our son's first car. I'm not very comfortable with him having smokes tail lights. It's a 2013 turbo. Would anyone be open to trading for some stock tail lights?
    I'm in So. Cal.
    Thanks!!
