Review & Install Video

Hey everyone I’m Justin from, here with an easy and budget friendly way to add stealthy styling to your S197 Mustang thanks to our AmericanMuscle graphics smoked tint for your brake, side and quarter marker lights. All AmericanMuscle graphics are designed and produced right here in our vinyl shop, hours of refining and testing have taken place on each vinyl design, ensuring that whatever piece ends up on your car fits perfectly every time. We at AmericanMuscle use only the highest quality premium cast vinyl, ensuring a great look that’s going to last for years to come. Now this is a great alternative to those other methods of tinting your lights, mainly messy dyes, which can be disastrous if done poorly. Installation should only take you about 15 to 30 minutes per light, and should be relatively easy as long as you follow our detailed instructions, and use a little patience. These pieces as seen here on our 2006 GT are sold separately so you can pick and choose what parts you want to tint to achieve your desired level of styling, however if you’re trying to go full on stealth mode, then you might want to pair all of these options together to complete the look. So if you’re looking to add that stealthy styling that is always popular while taking it a little easy on your wallet, you’ll definitely want to check out these smoked vinyl options from AmericanMuscle graphics.

removing tint How can I remove the tail light tint? They're not legal in California.


  • If you need to remove the tint, you can use a blow dryer to hear the tint up and make it easier to peel off slowly. Just be sure not to scrape it off as that will leave marks on your actual tail light. Hope this helps!

Is this compatible with a tail light trim? I have a black tail light trim on my '06 GT. It seems like they will work together but I just want to be sure. Also, are these tints darker than the tail light covers?


  • Yes they are compatible with the trim.

Answer This Question I need this answered (0) (0)

Hi, In Ontario, Canada there is a law regarding how far back a tail light must be visible from, at least 150 meters. Is there a manufacturer recommended bulb category / specification that would produce the same light output as the stock light bulbs specifications indicate? Preferably something I could point to if I were issued a ticket


  • Unfortunately no, there is no formula, per se, for how much brighter a bulb needs to be to shine through the tint in order to replicate stock brightness. It's just best to check your local ordinances, or even act someone in authority in general, if the Smoked Tail Light Tint (05-09 All) are illegal or not.

Tint w/ Conversion Decal Would the tint work well with the Matte Black Tail Light Conversion Decal Kit? I want the kit but at the same time I want tint.


  • I would advise not purchasing the Smoked Tail Light Tint (05-09 All) to work in unison with the Tail Light Conversion Decal Kit - Matte Black (05-09 All) item #100398 ( because the combination of the two may be too dark for your states inspection laws.

    Smoked Tint.

    The smoked tint products all came out quite perfectly. The process was very easy and if you need any help read the instructions that came attached with. The air bubbles were easy to eliminate. I used the soap and water mix to bond the tint to the lights. Apply a decent amount so the entire surface is wet, it will make it easier to adjust the tint to your light. All in all, very easy and looks perfect for the smoked out look.

    Tail Light tint

    The smoked tail lights were very easy to apply! I also purcased the Mustang 3rd brake light decal and it was a little more tricky pulling it off of the sheet. However, once I pulled off the decal, it was easy to apply and it looks great!! I used the soap/water combo in a spray bottle when applying the tint and it took awhile to dry. Be sure to keep an eye on the tint while it is drying and keep squeeging out the bubbles. All in all, everything turned out great and was a great purchase!!! i uploaded the pics to view for yourself. Mine is the black mustang, day and night shot. Thanks American Muscle!

    Taillight tint

    I really liked this product. I have never put tint on before, but it was so simple. It is a great product for causing that blackout effect. I do suggest that you spray a lot on the light and the tint so you are able to move into the right place.

    Easy Alternative

    These vinyl strips will totally transform the back-end view of your mustang. It took me right around 30 minutes (I have some experience working with tinting) to put these on and the fit like a dream, not only that you couldn't tell these from replacement smoked lights if they were side by side. If you are going for the smoked look get these and save yourself 60 bucks and the hassle of installing all new taillights.

    Got the look I was after without spending big money. The install was fairly easy and straight forward as long as you follow the instructions. You can peel off and reapply over and over if you don't get it lined up right before it drys.

    Basic peel and stick tint for your tail lights super easy but take your time with to keep it even and also work out the air bottles recommend using a spray bottle full of water to help apply but do not over do it

    Just What I Needed

    Great product. I was a little worried about how much light it would block out but this has the best of both worlds. When you aren't breaking, the lights are pretty dark, but when you do brake, its plenty bright, so you dont have to worry about getting pulled over for them, even here in Cali. Haven't ever done a vinyl application, but had clear instructions and included most everything I needed, so once I got in a groove it went along quite nicely. Awesome product and awesome service as usual from AM.

    Doesn't fit

    Tint was way too short. Tried putting it on but was about an inch too short (length and width) and I had to stretch it out to make it fit. Idk maybe I got a wrong cut or something. I thought it was supposed to come already pre-cut exactly to fit but I was wrong

    Look great!

    So the tint looks great and isn't hard at all to install. Just follow the directions. I have pretty much no mechanical skills and did it just fine. One minor detail, the tint doesnt COMPLETELY cover the tail light, in case you were wondering. I posted a picture of the tint how it leaves a small space on each light that is the normal color Red. But if you step back about two feet you can barely even tell so it doesn't matter. A little worried now though after I just installed on whether it is legal in Texas. I've had cops say they wouldn't get me for it, but forums say they will. Any enlightenment on this?

    Smoked tail light tint

    Installation was tricky----and required some trimming as the plastic was a bit too long up and down. It took a couple of tries to get it straight and do it with minimum air bubbles. A few bubbles remained but disappeared after 2 weeks. Appearance after installation is great.
