Headlight ArmorSmoked Taillight kits are a much quicker and easier alternative to taking your taillights apart and painting the inside
(risk of breakage and paint can be uneven and permanent), spray painting the outside with a product like VHT Nightshades (time consuming, easy to make a
mess of, and permanent), or even painting with some 'stained glass' paint you might find at hobby store (also time consuming, easy to make a mess of, and
permanent). They are also an option to the old fashioned clip-on / double sided tape-on hard plastic / acrylic versions that are easily stolen. They are
also much cheaper than buying OE style smoked replacement housings or lenses.
Headlight Armor Smoked Taillight film covers, which are precision manufactured, are made of tough impact resistant automotive grade high performance
translucent material with an acrylic adhesive backing that you can apply to your lights. Check our extensive DIY install
tutorials here to see how they are applied. Do not confuse these with 'overlays', as most overlays are typically made from 2-3mil vinyl (thinner than copy paper)
that is designed for the interior of flat illuminated signs and provide no real protection to your expensive lights. Some are even made from window tint.
Window tint is not a good idea as it is designed for the inside of a gently curved piece of glass, not on the exterior of a taillight. Cheap sign vinyl is designed for
FLAT applications - no taillights we know of are perfectly flat.... Headlight Armor is a tough film that also helps protect against everyday road hazards that can damage
and destroy your vehicle's very expensive lights, such as shopping carriages, careless shoppers and the like. The material is removable but you can only apply it
once after the adhesive has cured. All this while giving your vehicle a distinctive look!
Headlight Armor Smoked Taillight kits are available in three different tint levels.
Light Smoke: HeadlightArmor Light Smoke Taillight film covers are designed for those of you who are interested in a subtle 'Factory
Smoked Sport' look. Greatly tones down any bright work / chrome in today's taillights and gives the bright reds a deeper richer hue. Ideal for those looking for
clean lightly smoked look, or those looking to kill the the overdone chrome look that are coming through from the factory on some new vehicles. Click the first photo for the
Smoked Taillight Film kit install gallery and the second for the full night testing results page.
Smoke: Headlight Armor Smoke Taillight film covers are designed to turn a bright red taillight a rich deep dark burgundy in the afternoon sun.
In lower lighting conditions they look even darker. At night our smoke covers do not have such a large impact; the running lights, reflectors, and brake lights are all
clearly visible! If you were following somebody with the covers installed in a group of 10 different cars at night you would probably be hard pressed to guess which
vehicle had our smoked taillight kit installed. Click the first photo for the Smoked Taillight Film kit install gallery and the second for the full night testing results page.
Stealth Smoke: The Stealth Smoke Taillight film covers are ~ 25-35% DARKER than our Smoke version and look very dark when installed -
great for the blacked out look! Click the first photo for the Smoked Taillight Film kit install gallery and the second for the full night testing results page.
Most Headlight Armor Smoked Taillights kits can be installed in 15-45 minutes per side with the included instructions, included application squeegee, along with a
spray bottle, water, and a hair dryer (to warm the material if it is cool out) that you provide. Take a look at your taillights, the more steep angles and bulges
they have the more patience, time, and force will be required to install these adhesive backed protective covers. Most Headlight Armor Smoked Taillight kits will
require some minor trimming to fit with a very sharp razor knife like the knife we use here. This is done to
facilitate the install and enhance the custom look. If you don't feel confident about applying the film on your own, you may want to seek out the assistance of a friend.
Please Note: Check your local laws before installing on road going vehicles as they may or may not be legal on your primary lighting in your State.
