Smoked/tinted the tails on this new Mercedes E class. Trimmed out the reverse/turn signal portions as well for him.

Let me know what you guys think.

Here are some of the pictures of the tail lights that I vinyled over this weekend. Smoked/tinted the entire tail light on this BMW E60 535i. Yes, it is a film that I use, not spray/paint/etc.

Here are pictures of the tail lights that I tinted with a red vinyl film for on this Subaru WRX. I cut out the reverse/turn light pieces for him as well.

For those who don't know what these tails looked like before I tinted it, here's a stock picture for reference.

Those WRX taillights look great like that, not sure if I've ever seen them tinted red with the center cutout for reverse and turn signals. One of the only downfalls of those cars, great work as usual!

Here are pictures of tail lights that I tinted on a darker graphite colored C230 mercedes benz. The owner came from Glendale down to me in Orange County. I tinted the white turn signals on the tails, the turn signals on the side mirrors, and the amber reflector/light on the front bumper.

Here are pictures of the tail lights on a black E60 BMW 535XI that I tinted/smoked with a vinyl/film. Pictures are with the parking lights on, to show you how much light still shows/shines through the material. Owner of the car drove out to me in Orange County to get it done. Let me know what you guys think.

Here's a C300/C350 (don't remember which one it was exactly) that I did some tail light work on. I did a gloss black outline on his tail lights, similar to the tail lights that comes on the Brabus C classes. The owner of this car was from Long Beach, and I happened to be out in that area from Orange County, so I dropped by to do his tail lights for him. I also applied gloss black vinyl over his chrome rear trunk handle to add to the gloss/black theme.

Here's a stock photo of the tail light, to give a better side by side comparison of how it looked before/after.

Here are pictures of some tail lights that I tinted with my vinyl/material film in a gunsmoke shade on a blue E60 530i I believe. The owner of this car drove from Fullerton out to me in Orange county to have it done. The tint really toned the tail lights down to flow with the rest of the car fairly well.
