Hey guys,

I'm learning how to tint around the curves of our taillights and having lots of trouble with it. Do any of you guys have any tips of what I can do?

use a heat gun. start with low heat so you dont melt it. Our taillights suck to tint

I'll try it again some more with a heat gun, I want to learn how to do it. Shops around me want to charge me $240 to do the rears, I'd rather save that money use to towards the powder coating my wheels hopefully early next month for $260.

it might be easier with a hair dryer so it doesn't burn your hand or risk of burning the vinyl... might also be easier if you take the lights off too
