We use new headlight and rear light tinting mesh vinyl that sticks to the outer surface of any light fitting creating a factory finish dark smoke effect. It is waterproof and durable so once applied it can be washed and treated like any other surface on your vehicle. There is no need to remove the light fitting. Vinyl has excellent durability with great resistance to most road and weather conditions. It is manufactured to conform to most light contours and can be installed quickly and if needed removed with little or no adhesive residue.
But if you would like for your rear lights to look darker, we offer to use light tinting film. It can be used only on rear lights, as it does not comply with regulations to tint front lights.
MOT rules and regulations state:
A pair of headlights must: emit light of substantially the same colour and intensity. Emit a steady colour of either white or yellow. Be visible from a reasonable distance.
A brake light must emit a steady red light. At least 50% of the lamp must be visible from the rear Light must be visible from a reasonable distance
At least 50% of the reflecting surface must be visible from a reasonable distance.
Every indicator must emit amber light. At least 50% of the lamp must be visible. Light must be visible from a reasonable distance.
A headlamp or rear tail lamp altered in this way is not a reason for MOT rejection. So long as light outputs are not adversely reduced, it emits the appropriate correct colour and the mask is securely attached.
