Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin with and I’m checking out a couple of easy and budget friendly ways to add that stealthy blackout styling to the rear end of your New Edge Mustang, thanks to our AmericanMuscle graphics smoked tint for your third brake light, tail lights, and rear quarter lights. All of our AmericanMuscle graphics are designed and produced right here at our AmericanMuscle headquarters in our very own state of the art vinyl shop. They are then test fitted on our very own fleet of cars first, ensuring a perfect fit every time. The decals are precision cut from durable dark smoked vinyl for that perfect fit and aggressive styling that’s sure to look good on any color Mustang. Installation itself should only take you 15-30 minutes per light, and should be relatively easy as long as you follow our detailed instructions and use a little patience. These pieces are sold separately so you can pick and choose what lights you’d like to tint in order to achieve your desired level of styling, of course if you really want to go to the dark side then you might want to try pairing all these options together. I know some people may say smoking is bad for your health but not when it comes to your Mustang, that being said you’ll definitely want to check out some of these smoked vinyl options from

Does this cover the ENTIRE brake light? Does the tint cover the entire brake light section, being the side of it and the top part? Or is it only one thin strip that covers the side of the brake light? Thanks.


  • This is a 2-piece brake light tint that will cover the front (bottom) portion as well at the top of the light.

Is this static cling or tint with adhesive?

Should I clean the cloudy 3rd brake light before installing the vinyl or will it light through just as bright if I install on a cloudy brake lens?


  • Just use some rubbing alcohol on the bare brake light and make sure there are no particles or bumps. Get a spray bottle and put some dish soap and hot water and mix. Spray this on the brake light and apply the decal. This will keep it from sticking and allow you to move it around till you get it in the perfect spot. Once you like where its placed, use the applicator to push all the liquid and air bubbles out. You will NOT be able to see any of the cloudiness through this tint. Also, my lights are very bright at night even with the tint applied. Good purchase.

    I have a \'01\' Mustang GT and like most owners of 99-04 late model stangs the third brake light gets that cloudy fadded look pretty fast. If you don\'t wanna dish out a hundred bucks and want a quick fix that still looks clean and professional go with this vinyl tint. It covers the whole length of the light from side to side.Thanks!

    3rd brake light tint

    This product really looks great. It was fairly easy to apply and well worth the effort. Clean the plastic light with a degreaser, wipe over with a wet cloth or better a mister with a little soap mixed in the water. CAREFULLY peel back the lower decal cover and place on the light. If you have enough water/soap on the plastic the decal will slide around, when the decal is placed correctly, starting from the center gently rub the excess water out toward the edges with a plastic card or a cloth. Be patient and take your time. when you have finished repeat the process with the upper part of the decal. The edges of the decal might not stick until all the water has all gone so give it a couple hours and come back to the edges.

    Third Brake Light Tint Works Great

    It has always driven me crazy how cracked and ugly looking this was. I am the original owner so I know how well the car was taken care of, always garaged, low mileage, regular maintenance etc.... I thought for the price, i'll try the tint. I think its been working out just as expected! I put it on my car about a month ago, used my own common sense and didn't follow the instructions as the ones included in my package was for the left/right brake tint, not the third brake light. However, it adhered fine! Only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the die cut is not perfect; it's a bit short on each end of the outward facing piece, but definitely suitable. BTW, this has held up to washing's perfectly.....

    Good fix for $10

    Really updates the clouded, worn look of the stock third light. I did however find it about an 1/8" short on either side. Not very noticeable from a distance but up close it kind of bothers me, probably because I know it's there. All and all its definitely worth $10 bucks.

    Caught my Third Brake light smoking!

    Third Brake light was old and sun damaged. Sanded top layer, smooth it out. Clean light real good and installed the Tint and looks like new. Take your time and follow the installation guide word for word and you'll be fine. Love it and saved me from buying a new Brake light.

    Smoked 3rd Light

    Easy install. It pretty much goes on like tint for windows. My 3rd brake light was all oxidized. This was an easy fix to the appearance. A must for any black Mustang. You need a spray bottle and filtered water for install.

    The tail light tint was ok. I didnt let it dry long enough I guess and the top peice flew off at some point when I was driving. The bottom part stuck and when it dried it looked good, except there were bumps where the "Ford" logo is on the tail light. After about a week I took off the rest of the tint and painted the light with night shades

    Get what you pay for

    The tint looks very good and is made of great quality tint. The cut on it doesn't fit the brake light very well though. I have about a 1-8"-1/4" left on both sides where the tint doesn't cover (it's where the OEM light changes to the darker shade). The tint covers the actual lights and you can only notice this imperfection when you are close (easy to notice at a car show). From about a car length back, it looks perfect. Great bang for your buck especially considering how much a new one costs. I would buy again.

    Such a pain

    I got these to match my smoked tails. These are not a perfect cut and will leave a gap between both pieces. Worth a shot for the price. But just know it will not be a perfect fit. If I could go back I wouldn't buy this and just get the Black LED one.

    Tough to get right!

    Just lil tint, this product is tough to work with. Has nothing to do with American Muscle as I have tried other companies as well. Be prepared to have some air bubbles that want go away. Just spend the money and get the smoked LED third brake light.

    Not an exact fit, but not to bad

    Easy to install and looks pretty decent. Wasn't an exact fit and since the 3rdcar brake light has raised letters on it gives one part a bubble look.

    I dont know what other people are talking about, this definitely came with 2 pieces for the front and top of thethird brake light. installation was easy but as with all precut vinyls it doesnt fit perfectly and it wont look nice unless you spend a good bit of patience pushing it around on your brake light. overall good for the price

    Perfect Tint

    My third brake light looked terrible before this tint. It was all faded and looked almost white and with this tint it now looks basically brand new since the reflection goes along with my black car. Definently recommend.

    Great Look without Compromising Safety!!

    This is the best way to get the smoked 3rd light look, especially considering the price. It completely blacks the light out, but when the brakes come on, you can still see the light illuminate, even in bright sunny conditions. It's easiest to remove the light from the trunk lid for installation, but you don't have to. The pieces fit perfectly, and unless you take a good close look, it's hard to tell it's just tint.
