I've been looking to do something exterior to my car, and to this day i've never seen a Fresco Green with tinted tails.

I'm also in the process of shaving and smoothing out the stock bumper cover (will keep you posted) but in the meantime...

The darker your car is, the better the tinted tails look...
Black, Silver, and Blue Anthracite look best....

Can someone help me out?

Try this picture....



Or this one...



TIA!!!!!

Cool, I just talked to Jon Boy, and he does them in Light, Medium or Dark.

Does anyone have any pictures of the various styles???

I'm thinking "Medium" Or should I go light? argh!

just got my tails tinted last week - i love the look... it takes away from that red glare on the back end and kind of rounds out the cars look. Light shines through perfectly still. I'd definitely recommend it.

This is what it would look like with a thin coating of nightshade

THANKS MERK, I REALLY REALLY appreciate that!
I didn't see that post until today!

I just installed Jon's tails a few hours ago and thats almost what it looks like, but just a SHADE darker!

I'll post pictures ASAP on a new thread!


Eber, THANKS! Sometimes I feel I get no love because its not Black or Silver, but that motivates me to do things noone else has done! :thumbup:

THE JOB IS COMPLETED! (thanks Jon) :bow:

Jordan - I didn't want it TOO light, or TOO dark, so Jon figured he'd go right in-between Light and Medium. See below on what it actually looks like...

Christina, that is EXACTLY what it looks like on an overcast day! (today)
It would be a HAIR lighter in the sun, and a TAD darker @ night.
You really nailed it! Oddly enough, the picture that you modified is ALSO an overcast day! (too many down here in SA)

I maybe went a tad darker than what I should have, but looking back, I would rather be a smidgin too dark than too light.
Thanks everyone!


I'll take some pictures when shes clean and its a nice day out. (soon) Also, I'll do a night shot so everyone can see what the lights look like lit up @ night, and you can add positive/negitive input!
