welcome

first off
depending on your laws, u may want to consider painting them red..if you smoke them, it needs to be visible during daylight hours, or accidents can occur....feel me?

There is a tutorial in the DIY section.

Also, the paint can be gotten at any hobby store, or WalMart

you mind me asking what country are you from? cause the last time I checked legal driving age is 15.75 years old to even be legal to drive with an adult supervision. That number was supposed to rise shouldn't have decrease unless the US government is screwing up some where. :confused:

Anyways smoking out your tails should cost you about 20 bucks for the spray tint and a couple hours of your time.

Smokin Tails

Hi,

Well I tried smoking my tails using the hobby store paint, but I had problems...

I do not think I let it dry enough between coats (I wanted a DARK finish), so I got an "orange-peel" effect with a bunch of little holes and stuff throughout... I did take care to smooth the tails first and to use a good amount of rubbin alchohol to clean them very well.

Eventually I had to sand, scape, paint thinner off the stuff cause it looked very bad on my Legend... If you end up trying to remove it, it can be a *****. You will also never get that luster of the original taillights, even after using a power polisher and fine plastic polish. I am going to attempt tinting them again, and I will post results.
