Re: Ebay Headlight Tint (PasS40ion)

LOL, I would've bought them a long time ago but I have been funneling all of my extra cash toward other projects and school...for $25 you really can't complain too much though. I think people say Lamin X makes some quality stuff, but I think it is more expensive. Someone did do that a month or two ago and said the tint they got was too much. But since you are running your HIDs again I think it would be fine...

ya the lamin X is double the price plus shipping...<p>but I think the headlight tint will really go nicely with my red/black theme.

before you buy that there is some things to consider.<p>I myself have recently bought some rvinyl stuff. I went directly through there website (has much more selection, colors, etc) and got some gloss black vinyl for eyelids and tail sides. They also sell stuff on amazon, which could be cheaper. I bought their smoked vinyl for my tails from amazon (rvinyl) for less than $10 i think (24''x24'' sheet)<p>The other thing is, if your handy (doesnt take much). Go to their website (rvinyl.com) and just purchase a sheet big enough for what you want and apply and trim it out yourself. If would be cheaper than the precuts. <p>Lastly, if you DO use their direct website or amazon to purchase, use promo code RVINYL for 10% off purchase! sorry so lengthy!<p>Heres what Rvinyls stuff looks like (black is perfect match)<p>eyelid<br><IMG SRC="http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j150/element12104/100_1522fixed.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j150/element12104/100_1523fixed.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>side of tail gloss black and smoked vinyl on back of tails<br><IMG SRC="http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j150/element12104/100_1524fixed.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: (HaZed)

Yeah, RVinyl uses a few different brands of vinyl, they just set themselves apart because they offer precut stuff but you can buy the same or very similar stuff from any sign shop. My vinyl has been on the car for over 6 months and still looks amazing, it does have an outdoor life of 6+ years, maybe slightly less on vehicles according to Oracal.

no prob...get the sheets...it might take you a bit longer to put on and trim out but worth it for half the price (to me anyways)
