    (BK) Wagon Looking For Pre-Cut Tail Light Smoked Vinyl?

    I just got some pre-cut smoked tinted vinyl for my 05 LGT. Would love to do the same to my 95 BK. Anybody have a link or a DIY on the best stuff to get? There is nothing coming up on a search here on our forum.

    Wouldn't it be just as easy to just cut excess off a regular piece?

    I highly doubt that an "off-the-shelf" solution would exist for 2nd gen. 4th gen (05-09) are very popular in the aftermarket parts area, so it makes sense that someone would make precut vinyl for that generation.. but 2nd gen, not so much.

    Either get some basic vinyl and cut to fit, or pick up a can of VHT Niteshades

    Was thinking about that myself but in the You Tube video's it looks like a bitch trying to wrap it around the rounded tail lights but easy on the garnish area. A heat gun looks like the best way to manipulate it while applying it.

    VHT does look like the best option rather than vinyl. Just thought I would ask first incase I missed a post or a link with pre-cut vinyl. Thanks......

    Just keep in mind... "Light coats" you do not want to have to sand down your lights because you went you heavy and your tails don't work anymore.

    Absolutely...It looks like from watching various You Tube video's that three coats is plenty to keep the "Po Po" from hassling you. Thanks......

    Lamin-X tint film is a good alternative to vinyl also.
