One popular way to enhance the look of your car is to tint the windows but there is another tinting process that is gaining interest today. Tail light and headlight tinting is exploding and for good reason. It changes the look of your car in a big way. There are 2 different ways to tint head lights and tail lights. Both have advantages and disadvantages. The first way we will discuss is the process of tinted tail lights by way of light emitting vinyl. In this process, the vinyl is carefully stretched and molded to conform to the shape of your lights. The film looks decent and can be removed down the road if for some reason you want or need to remove the film. One minor drawback to this film is that the finish is less than ideal. The optical clarity is not the greatest and minor imperfections in the film are always visible. This film is also susceptible to damage. It can be nicked scratched or torn if it is not taken care of properly. For instance, it’s not a great idea to go to touch style automatic car washes with this film. This film needs to be babied and carefully maintained. The other option is to have the lights painted in a special process that allows the lights to still pass through. This process is done by spraying the lights with an automotive clear coat with a small amount of black mixed in. By a process of layering the paint different levels of darkness can be achieved. The paint method is just as durable as the paint that is on your car. It can be waxed and is virtually maintenance free. The one drawback is that once the tail light tinting is done it can not be removed, it is permanent. So if you wanted it gone you would be required to buy new lights and install them. As stated both processes have pros and cons but one thing is certain. Tinted tail lights and headlights look awesome and will make any car look great.
