thanks every1.....
the product is VHT Niteshades...took about 2 n half hrs to remove taillights, tint n clearcoat em n put em back in.....basically..jus covered up the white part with tape and then sprayed away....make sure u spray for at least a good foot away for each coating or else it bunches together and runs...n if it does...DO NOT use a paper towel...youll get mad lint (my initial mistakes)....i probably put about 10 layers all together even tho it says dont put more than 3 cuz the light might not shine thru lol.....but i tested it as i was doin it n the taillights are obviously still shinin thru...n i wanted it black...not like dark red....just let it try after each coat or tint.....after ur totally dun tintin....take off tape off the covered part and then clearcoat the whole taillight with a few coats....then just let dry and put ur tails bak in!...

this is where i ordered from...$22 shipped with clearcoat

True, but with my luck I'll probably turn out screwing it up, I was thinking of my CLK430 badge gunmetal or black, same for the star in the front. I'd imagine it would make the badge stick out more on your car since it's a lighter color. I've seen it done on various different cars, looks pretty nice. :D

Take care & enjoy the ride,
