Taillight Tint in Nova Area?

Hey guys,

I was looking for a place that would tint my taillights anywhere in nova with a good deal and good work. Matt at TNT Tint did my windows but he said he doesn't do tail lights because of the tint he uses. Does anyone have any suggestions or where they got it done?

Thanks!

Edit: Got it done by California Tint at Tyson's Corner. Mike helped me. See pictures in post below. Apparently he's an independent tinter who helps out shops. If anyone wants his number PM me.

If you want film, why not use Lamin-X from jlevi streetwerks? I have that on my car and it looks great, in my opinion.

I was thinking about doing that. How easy is it to use? I'm just worried I'll botch it somehow and make it look awful.

Also, could I get a link? I can't find it on their site or anywhere on the forums.

It's Gunsmoke. Any darker and the cops will be pulling you over for tinted tails, or so i've been told.

So I got lazy and on a friend's recommendation went to California Tint in Tysons. Local guy named Mike tinted my tails and actually I decided to ask him about the amber corners too. Personally he did a GREAT job. I was there for a while but he's a nice guy to talk to. For the tails he did for about ~$100 and for the ambers he did $30.
