    As the title suggest, what did you find, or hear, was the best tinting spray.

    Thanks, Tom

    the stuff from halfords does the job to be fair, just stick as many coats on as you want. to be fair i reckon they're all the same sort of stuff just make sure you don't laquer over the top as it reacts with the tint spray.

    do very light coats and make sure they are even if you go too heavy the lights will be very dark and illegal, the tint darkens as it drys and i would use laquer as the tint will wash off , just get your desired effect then laquer to complete.

    yeh just polish as normal, nothing to abrasive but the matte affect is because the spray has gone on in like a bumpy way which refracts the light instead of reflecting it, polishing it out will smooth the surface thus encouraging reflection.










    i think
