I've had quite a few requests for tinting tail lights recently, so I decided to post up some more pictures of them for you guys. The owner of this car was actually a firefighter at a station local/right down the street from me in Irvine, so I dropped by there to tint/smoke the tail lights and the top portion of the headlights on his black E60 550i.

Tinted/smoked left side, stock/untinted right side:




Both sides tinted:


Top portion of the headlights tinted/smoked:

This guy came down to me in Orange County from norcal with his white E92 M3 to have me vinyl wrap his roof in the 3M di-noc carbon fiber material. His car came with the sunroof option, so he didn't have the factory carbon fiber roof.

I worked on this black Bentley GT Continental coupe a while back. He brought his car by to have me black out the chrome window trim on his car. Originally he was going to go with gloss black, but once he got here we decided to go with the matte black to still give the covered pieces some contrast with the rest of the car. Also wrapped the chrome accents that were along the bottom of the car and his door handles. He was around Mission Viejo or so and came out to me in Anaheim Hills/Orange County.

PM sent.

One of my previous customers that had me vinyl wrap the roof on his 335i E92 sold his car and got a new car. He purchased the new limited edition matte black C63 coupe from Mercedes. Everything looked good on the car, except for the chrome window trim that blatantly stood out, especially against the matte black paint on the rest of the car. It's not often that I get a matte black car that comes in to have their window trim vinyl wrapped. He decided to go with gloss black for the window trim, to give it some contrast still, and I think it turned out great.

I'll try and change things up a bit here. Here's a silver Honda Civic that came by to get his roof wrapped in my matte black vinyl material versus gloss black which most people usually go with. This will help others who have a silver car or a glass sunroof and want to see what a matte black vinyled roof would look like on their car and how it contrasts, etc. The owner of this car was from Irvine/Orange County as well.

It'll show swirls/scratches more, due to the nature of gloss or black finishes in general. However, I haven't had anyone tell me that it that they experienced any out of the ordinary wearing.

You'll be fine. Did you need materials only I am assuming? If so, shoot me a PM.

Yes. Shoot me a PM what finish you wanted.

Trying to gauge if there is any interest in this flat black vinyl finish. I haven't posted pictures of this finish/material before, but I recently had a someone ask if I had something that was flatter than my matte black vinyl material. So, who's interested?

Flat black is on the left and matte black is on the right:
