    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    I am having 20% tint installed on Tuesday. They are also tinting the tail lights and the third brake light with film vs paint so I can reverse it if need be. I was not real happy with the way the Plasti Dip came out around the door window trim so I'm having them wrapped as well. It looked fine from the outside but I would see unevenness when looking out the mirrors and it was driving me nuts! I went with the glossy vinyl around the windows to match the paint. I should have pictures up Tuesday night. I hate leaving my car for 8 hours, but I'm not waiting around. My tint guy says the 3rd brake light is a PITA and that alone may take him 2 hours. He knows how anal I am and knows it needs to be perfect.

    Tail lights are being blacked out, as are all marker lights, windows getting 20% tint. I'm using plasti dip on the front fogs and the gray inserts so what else is left? Not tinting the windshield or the front lights as it is my daily driver so if that is what you need to call it "murdered" than I guess you're right, it's just a black car.

    Are your tinting your tails or using the night shade stuff?

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    I am tinting the tails. The windows were tinted today and the trim around the window was wrapped with gloss black vinyl along with tinting the front and rear caddy emblems. The tails will be done tomorrow but the car is dirty so won't get pictures up until the weekend after I wash it. The 20% tint looks great. It is not as dark as I expected. With the roof shade open it does not look dark at all.

    OK, changed my mind. Here are 2 crappy pictures...

    Just got it back but it's still dirty as heck. At least you'll get the idea. Black powder coated lugs are on the way..

    IMHO, you should paint the grey plastic rear valance and foglight buckets raven black.
    I think that would complete it and, as a bonus, you won't get wax marks on the plastic anymore.

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    Sorry litig8r187. To the gentleman who said my car was not even close to "murdered", your car would be closer but not good enough. Your badge still has color and you have not dangerously tinted your windshield or headlights. Also, your exhaust pipes are still shiny. Looks like there is some color on those rear marker lights and the white in your license plate has to go... Epic fail to v-caliber. J/K

    Seriously, your car looks great. I did the fogs and the front lower valance today.
