Re: Whats the best way to smoke my rear tail lights?

That looks like a good finish bex.1

Normally, I'm not fond of the tinting spray as the finish is normally flat / dull.

Personally, on m last car I had the lights professionally tinted using a pearl effect added to lacquer.

On my Megane, I went a bit cheapo and used windo tints (on the white bit only), but because I rushed it, I had a few stubborn bubbles that I just could not get rid of.

I ended up having the white bits smoked out at the bodyshop and then the whole lamps clear lacquered fr the extra gloss.
