Tinted tail lights

I guess it was done before but I just wanted to share a pic of my tail lights. I've tinted the white portion of it.
Love the result !

Nice look. I'm going to tint mine using the lamin-x cut out this summer. I've also thought about putting yellow tints over the fog lights.

Thanks for sharing

look like the same thing... the seller from whom I bought don't sell this vinyl anymore. I do know that there is different qualities though. I originally bought a cheaper vinyl and was never able to do a good job with it.
here is one more picture
