White Line Taillights w/ a Medium Smoke

Recently had a customer w/ white line taillights who wanted something a little different. We recommended doing a medium smoke on them and it turned out to look great. As always pictures don't do justice.

We use automotive paint to smoke the taillights. So it's basically like painting any other body panel, just requires certain preparation and removal of the taillights.

Taillights are about $650 & Smoking them is an additional $200.

No not really they are still very bright. You can see them on as parking light just as well as before and the braking is bright as well.
