I picked up some nightshade tint spray last night and I have an idea for the tails... i'm thinking of having one light say Mazda across it (left red) and MX-6 on the other left red but tinted on the rest of it, any opinions on this?

Please dont. I think you'll regret it after you do it.

I thought it always looked good with everything tinted except the reverse light, but their your lights

It would be cool if you had a small Mazda stencil (like 1" x 3") to use and put it in the corner of one of the lights at an angle. Then you could spray tint the whole tail with a light coat, remove the stencil/sticker, and spray it again. You would have tinted tails with a stealthy little mazda logo on them.

there is an idea! I probably wont be doing it for a little while now due to the cold weather unless I can find somewhere heated that I can paint.

yeah I was thinking of picking up a set of stock tails as a spare set to try it out on and do everything but the reverse lights on these ones but where the tails themselves are lit up at night on one side do the different levels of tint then where the turn signals ar put zoom in each one :D lol but in such a way that its only visible when lit up

planning on putting whatever is left over on my fogs.

Do yourself a favor and don't go overboard. Tinted tails are cool if done nicely but if you overdo them they will look bad.

Also, tinting your fogs would probably be a bad idea. I like how they look on my black car. It is a nice contrast.

Also, for the love of god, lower your car soon. I just checked out the link in your sig. That thing is a 4x4.

i'm not worried about cops lol at least around here a few of my friends did the tails in nightshades and when we have our little meets at tims usually a couple of the local cops come chill with us while they are on duty haha

Its only about 10-20 bucks to have stencils cut from a local vinyl shop. Thats how I did all my radical taillight designs back in the day.

I however would recommend to stay away from that and just tint them.
