My 2002 3.5 HO Dodge Intrepid. Now just under 50k miles running with no problems ever :) Got the windows tinted 50% windshield, 35% front windows, 5% back and rear. Nightshaded the foglights and put a nice license plate cover with a tint. Installed a Pioneer radio that changes through over 30 colors. Put in alpine type r speakers in front and back ran with a matching alpine 4ch. amp. Bought 2 Kicker CVRs and made my own ported box for them although need to redo white carpet on front. Ran those with a memphis mojo amp. Also just put some projector headlights on with ccfl halos and 10000 hids.

Looks awesome. I have the same Pioneer deck, it's a click system! It's color function comes in REALLY nicely when you get the bug to change the interior lights, can get it all to match effortlessly then! :D

She looks great. Now it just needs some leather seats, chrome interior handles and a chrome on black cluster! Oh oh and cannot forget the....... haha list can go on forever, these cars are to much fun.

Looks really nice - I like the angle of photo and the stance of the car in your driveway. Sucker for a red head...
Thanks I also really like the red. I had a 1999 Camaro that was bright red =p

Great looking car . Love the red nightshaded the foglight . How did you dat that. Are they covers or or what. I see plenty of forum members with it.
THANKS!!! :]
umm... What I did was:
Step 1: Buy some VHT Nightshade taillight tint and a can of Clear-Coat
from your
local auto zone/o'reillys/advance auto parts/ect..should be between $10-$15.00, no more than $20.00 for both.
Step 2: Take the foglights off and unclip them
You could take them off the black plastic frame but I just put painters tape over it so I wouldnt get any spray on it.
Step 3: Clean your fog lights really good before you tint them to keep away from any unwanted marks when your finished. Wet-sanding
them is the way to do it if you want them to look perfect. You also would do this to any light (such as taillights) before tinting, but don't use too high of grit and
scratch your lights up lol. However, I did not need to do this step because my car was garaged for 6 years and the lights look pretty new still with little to no imperfections.
Step 4: Apply 1 layer of Nightshade at a time. Hold your spray can about 8 inches from the light when spraying and go across the whole
light 1 time without releasing the spray to achieve a full solid coat. The more you do, obviously the more black or dark it will be and also less translucent (for my fog lights
i used 2-3 layers). Don't hold too close or spray way too much because then it will be too wet and cause drips. (if this occurs just wait for it to dry and wet-sand them away and re-do).
Step 5: After the first layer (and every layer after) is applied wait 20-30 minutes for it to dry (i always wait an extra 10-15min. to be safe).
Now this is up to you and this could determine the quality of your tint job but wet-sanding in-between layers will remove any imperfection made when spraying or drying.
Once dry begin the next layer if wanted or necessary or move on to step 6.
Step 6: Apply a layer of clear coat (picture of can above) the same way you did the nightshade. You can hold the can like 2-3 inches farther away because its not necessary to spray it closer lol.
Step 7: Let it dry for at least 30 minutes. Wet-sand if needed, like, only if you messed up. Usually sanding the clear-coat layers isn't needed unless there is bubbling or imperfections as right stated before.
Step 8: Add more layers as desired. Each layer will make it more glossy and shiny, but also kind of add an un-wanted bevel look to it if you do too much
(i have not actually put any clear-coat on my fog lights, but i would suggest 2-3 layers unless you are going for a specific flat black like what i got in those pics above.
anymore than 3 or 4 will make it extremely glossy and shiny but you take chances of imperfections or messing it all up every-
time you do a layer). Clear-coat will provide the ultimate protection for your tint and make it look higher quality and professionally done.

Even though I haven't clear-coated them yet, I still want to and plan to as soon as I get the time and it isn't so cold up here in Michigan :( I really need to do mine soon though, since now I got the
brand new shiny black projector headlights.. My fogs only have that flat black look until I do that :/

Looks nice, you should put some chrome pillars on it, make sure to get the 6 piece kit, not the 4. I tinted the tail lights on mine with the same product, came out nice.

God that makes me miss inferno red so much. I maintain that color is one of the best automotive paints ever made.

I love those headlights too. Looks mean but clean mean.

Did you buy it new or used?

And hopefully this will give you some inspiration of how nice inferno red/body painted tails are vs. tinted..

Not yet but I had the same tints on my other car and I got ticketed twice so I had to remove them. Guess it depends if the cops in the area are having a good day or not lol
It's probably different per state but how much was the ticket you paid for illegal tints?

I've been thinking about getting 5% on all windows but I don't want to pay a 200$ ticket and have to remove them.
