How do I tint car tail lights?

How can I tint my car lights? I want to modify the tint on my tail lights.

Changing the tint on your car tail lights is simple but awesome looking modification. That said, before you proceed with this modification, make sure you check your state’s regulations. Some states do not allow tinting or have restrictions on the darkness.
Materials you will need:
  • Hairdryer
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Exacto knife or utility knife
  • Squeegee
  • Spray bottle filled with water
  • Window tint film of your choice of darkness percentage (5%, 30%, or 50%)
Step one: Use the utility knife to cut the tint film roughly the same size as your tail lights, allowing excess material around the edge. Step two: Take your spray bottle and spray the tail light. Step three: Take off the protective layer on the adhesive side of the tint. Try to move quickly during the step because dust can get stuck on the adhesive layer. Step four: Apply the tint film on the wet surface of the tail light. Step five: Use your squeegee to push out the air bubbles and water. Begin at the center of the tint film and gradually work towards the edges to flatten the tint film. Step six: Use your hairdryer or heat gun to seal the edges into places. Be mindful not to apply too much heat as it can cause the material to wrinkle. Step seven: Cut the extra film around the edge of the tint. Use a squeegee or a credit card to make the edges flat.
After that, step back and admire your tint modification!
