Difficulty Level:Simple installation for anyone
I ordered this tint package and couldn't be happier. The trick to installing them on the tail lights is heat and light stretching, but no too much or else you'll cause creases and finger imprints. I ... had a couple small creases and bubbles on the outer corner lights, but that was my own fault. If installed correctly, these overlays work great! The 3rd brake overlay was as simple as it looks. No problems there! Yet another great product from American Muscle! Thanks guys!!
this really looks great once its on, its tinted just right, not too dark, and looks 1000x better than those tail light covers. the only problem i had was it takes a LOT of patience to get them on without ... creases and bubbles, but in the end even if you do have some bubbling, its not noticable unless you look super close up to them. good buy
Hey everyone I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com 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 American Muscle graphics smoked tint for your third brake light, tail lights, and rear quarter lights. All of our American Muscle graphics are designed and produced right here at our American Muscle 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 AmericanMuscle.com View Full Transcript
Can you apply the tint in the cold?
Decals, tint, or paint are not recommended by any one I have ever talked to when temps are below 50 degrees or above 70. Reason being, materials will begin shrinking or expanding past those temps causing residual problems such as misshapen areas where pieces may pull back from the glue or excessive bubbling/peeling due to expansion/contraction. Another item to keep in mind is relative humidity too. Again, most folks I have talked to do not recommend relative humidity being above 50%, personally if its more than 40% i would be concerned that there may be moisture trapped under the decals, tinting or paint.
Going through car wash? Will the tint stay on while going through car washes? How long they do they last?
would this tail light tint be better than the tail light covers? I bought the tail light covers but didn't really like how they looked...would this tint look different or better than the covers?.also is it hard to install?
Installation Time:Less than 1 Hour

Great Tint At Great Price
Tint went on really easy. I ordered tint from AutoBadges, it was not as easy to install and was over sized. Just like all of American Muscle's products price was great and fit perfect. Would definitely recommend.

Great Alternative for that black out look
I wanted the smoked (blacked) out look but couldn't spend a lot of cash. I saw these and gave them a try. At first they bigger piece wouldnt curve right and I got a bit worried. After I took my time and used my hands to keep working the area it fit really good. I don't have a hair dryer or heat gun, but I used an electric heating pad and it made the sticker very forgiving. Had 3 air bubbles after it was all said and done. I took a small needle and pushed it into the center of the bubble. After running the squeegee over the lights about 3 or so more times that afternoon and leaving it to cure overnight. The next day bubbles were gone and it looked awesome. The only thing that sucked was the third brake light. This one a heat source will help because its hard to make the two look flush together but after working it over and over it also looked a lot better once it cure for a day. I also took lights off to do them inside since its 30 degrees up in Wisconsin. All in all they look good and saved me a chunk of cash.

2000 v6 Mustang
My car needed some style and a more sporty look so I bought these. All I can say is they look AMAZING! My car looks soooo more aggresive. By the way the shipping was SUPER fast! It took me about two and a half hours to put it all on my car. The best tool to put this on your car is your hand. Rub it with your hand and take all the creases out with your hand. Spray the tint with tons of water so you can more easily flatten all the bubbles out. Kinda difficult to put on, but with alot, and i mean alot of patience, you can make it look perfect. Recommend this to any mustang owner.

Affordable Semi Permanent Brake Light Darkening
I bought these for my Girlfriend's black 2000 coupe. The fitment was great, getting all the bubbles out of the tint took some work but the over result is great. Wetting down the area so you can move the tint around saves a lot of headaches. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable way to darken your brake lights.
Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

I followed the directions to a tee and I still ended up with bubbles. Not sure what happened. From a distance it looks good but io close you can see alot of bubbles.

Takes a lot of patience to get these on correctly with no bubbles, but they eventually smooth out and fit perfectly. Great look when done!

Smoked Brake Light Tint Kit
Saved a lot of money over buying the actual lens but I still got the same result. Only took about 15 minutes since since I have experience. Don't have to worry about these getting ripped off by some jerk either. And they wont break like the cheap plastic cover you can buy. Thanks AM!

Take your time...
My car is the True Blue GT. It was easy to install the inner two sections of each taillight. I made it easy on myself by cutting down the excess surrounding paper on each piece of tint. When it comes to the outside pieces; this is where you need a lot of patience. Not to mention a hair dryer or something similar to blow hot air. It will help you stretch the material and smoothen out when needed to attach on the curves. I love the item...much cheaper than buying and installing the smoked taillights.
