Forget the expensive detail shops. Give your taillights an edgy temporary tint on your own with Peel Coat Lens Tint.  Get a blackout effect with the option to change it, or remove it, whenever you want.

PREPARE: For best results, the surface area must be free of dirt, oil, grease or wax. Wash the surface area you want to paint with soap and water. Dry thoroughly. Tape around the area you wish to paint, then tape paper around the surface area to keep splatters at bay.  Work in a well-ventilated area, such as a garage.

PAINT: Shake the Lens Tint can for one minute. Hold the can 8-12 inches from the surface and spray in a steady, back and forth motion, slightly overlapping each coat. Let dry 5-10 minutes between coats. Add 2-3 more coats for a light finish, or up to 3 more coats for a darker effect.

FINISH: The tint is dry to the touch in approximately 20 minutes and can be handled in an hour. Remove paper and tape and allow to cure for approximately 24 hours before putting it on the road. The tint can withstand up to 100 car washes. When you’re ready to remove it and go back to the original lenses, the tint can be peeled off easily. For best results, the tint should be removed within 6 months.
