Get a roll of STATIC CLING tint (AutoZone carries). Not only do you get the glossy look like OEM tails but if you get popped for tinted tails you can take it off right then and there! Can't say the same with VHT. Also have a huge chance to mess things up if you're a novice spray bomber when using the VHT.

You can get tint film in 5%, 20%, 35%, 50%, etc. Just go to Wal-Mart or an auto parts shop and look around.

Personally what i've seen:

Film
Film
dunno depending on how many sprays of VHT you are using or how dark the window tint is.

haha i remember those pantyhose tailights... good times lol

If it was me tinting my tailights (again) I would go with VHT niteshades because that way you can get them as dark as you want or as light as you want and personally i think a well done niteshaded job looks much better than window tint, but i have seen some window tint on some Gen 2's that looked pretty awesome.

I just think it would be hard to tint a Gen 4 tailight with window tint and i know it is on a Gen 3 because I tried it.

Im not saying I did a perfect niteshading job on my tailights but I will they look pretty good and Wade (w2n) did a perfect job on his Gen 4, they look amazing.

just my .2 cents

this is a link to when i first niteshaded my tailights, they are not really that dark, i was just parked in the shade. All my good pics of my tailights magically turned into black and white photos on photobucket WTF

EDIT** oops forgot to post link lol http://taurusclub.com/forum/index.php?auto...amp;mod_id=6252
