Tinting tails tommorow....

Hey I am going to tint my tails tommorow. I am using my CF tails that I had laying around. The seal is broke on one but I am just going to get some clear silicone to seal it up. Any last minute pieces of advice before I start spraying? I will take some pics tommorow to!

Find something to place the tails in while they dry cause dust and random flying crap will stick to the spray.

i did the same. if you tape anything off, dont mess up, i did alittle, and i cut where i wasnt suppose to, and when i sprayed it, you can tell the mark it left.

Probably 1000 grit sandpaper should do. You should get some clear cote and that should help it come out shinier.

I am waiting on the first coat to dry...I am doing this on some old after market tails I had laying around. No way I would do it with my factory lights.

A good spot to let them dry is the oven. Dust free, just make sure no one turns it on.
