I agree with that.. Body shop work will always be solid. My tails were my first experiment ever with VHT and they came out great. Have also done my friends 300 and anothers buds 01 Chev 1500. But I do have much experience with spray cans and painting with them lol.

Default dodger/t ur halos

Hey, where did u find halos for a 4 bulb system and how difficult was the wiring for the led and halo? the ones I see as plug n play aren't true plug and play compared to the halos for the '00 dak r/t I had, but that was a 2 bulb system.

Thanks,
todd

I did my tails and third brake light with VHT Niteshades as well and cleared over it properly. They are very glossy and smooth and I am very happy with them. My only concern is that I read somewhere that Niteshades can fade out over time. Mine have been done close to a year or so now and I haven't noticed any fading but I find myself looking at them all the time and thinking "Are those fading some? Do they look a little more red or is it just me?" Honestly, I think it's just my imagination so far. But if I ever do have an issue with the Niteshades I too will probably get a professional paint/clear job done with true automotive materials.

Here's a close-up of the Niteshades finish.


And a distance shot of how they all look. Truck has changed a little since then and it was dirty, lol.


As for the heads, as someone else said I would NEVER put Niteshades on my headlights. Never never never, lol. I actually like the chrome reflective look of my heads with my silver truck but if I wanted to tint them I would look at the vinyl film by Lamin-x or similar. It's cheap, relatively easy to install, and easy to remove if needed. I have Lamin-x optic blue on my fogs and love it. It really sets them off in person. I have had it on there six months or so with zero issues.
