I''m trying to find on-line, or anywhere that I can get tints for my headlights and tail lights. Also, I am looking for the clear side marker lights as well for my 2000 SC1. Anyone know of anywhere I could find this stuff??? Thanks.[img]smileys/smiley5.gif[/img]

You''ll have to tint them yourself. VHT makes a product called nightshades I think. Its a spray on tint.

As for the clear corners, check ebay.

i did the vht nightshade spray; and as long as you prep it good and clearcoat, it comes out great. if you have the money your better off going to a paint shop and tell them to spray your headlights and taillights with a drop of black in the clearcoat, its not as dark depending on the amount of coats but looks sweet.

Thanks for the info... I think I may do the painting myself. I used to paint muscle cars back in the day. What exactly do they use, do you know? Maybe I should just let someone else do it. I wonder if GTS has headlight covers with the three holes for the lights to shine out?


Anyone know?

I didn''t say anything about great...lol [img]smileys/smiley2.gif[/img] I just did some spraying in my uncle''s shop back home, and on cars that we restored for ourselves. Anyway, I think I can pull it off. I just need to know what I should be spraying over that plastic.

Just use 1500 or 2000 grit sandpaper and wet sand the plastics softly. then dry and whip clean, shake the vht can really good. spay nice even coats and let dry between each coat. then what i did was after completely dry i wet sanded it once more. and sprayed some coats of clearcoat on... it gives it that nice fresh gloss look.

Wow, I hope you are just rying to be funny, not smart... Anyway, I know VHT was mentioned. I didn''t know if I needed to spray something on the plastic to prep it for the VHT. Gees... Anyway, thanks to both of you. I will see if any of my local shops carry it. If not, I will try to find it on-line.
