Well the middle tail light is tinted with VHT nightshades but the rest of the window is painted black.

Nice photos
Well so far so good, the ride is totally solid

They are my favorite of your rims, but I couldn't have them - they'd all have more curb rash on them than I'd know what to do with.

Ok, so you used CHT spray tint. I have used the product before. Do you still have visiblilty through the small window or is it to dark now that you tinted it? I've been trying to figure out how to tint that piece without resorting to the spray tint. How do you like the results and how is it holding up? Sorry I hope it doesn't feel like were playing 20 questions.

I think you misunderstood...i only spray tinted the brake light portion of window. I layed down actual paint on the window since it got to the point that i had no visibility out of it whatsoever. So now as it stands there is zero visibility out of that pointless window. Hope this clears things up.

Ugh - Plastidip is the Tim Tebow of the automotive world. Decent in limited amounts, but not as good when used more often.
