General maintenance
4.04 (1) Lighting devices required by this Division must be maintained in good working order.

(2) Lamps and reflectors required by this Division
(c) must not be shielded, covered or obscured by any part of the vehicle or load or by dirt or other material "

Let alone the legal aspects here, why would anyone want their brake/signal/tail lights etc to be harder to see by other drivers? Looks nice but asking for trouble.

yea just bring your car out to the spring meet and we can get it done, just bring some green painters tape and some kind of large cover we can put over the rear of your car. Then I just use an exacto knife to cut the taillight pattern, painters tape for small openings to make sure the only thing exposed is the taillight, and then whip out the VHT spray. I still got half a can left so I'll bring the spray, and I dont have anything else we need so you bring the rest.

I actually sprayed on 2 light coats of flat black on the emblem with a coat of clearcoat, so I didn't use much VHT spray on the emblem at all, just the tails.

By the way TruenoSan, I know you work at Arbor I see your car there when I stop by did you do any of the work on my car the few times it was there ??


did it turn out like the pictures you posted in the 1st post? cant tell by your pics

the emblems no because I ended up using flat black spraypaint since the VHT wouldnt stick and it wasnt meant for any other materials than plastic. The taillights came out good though

i dont like how tinted tail lights give that dull hazy look, makes the lights look old. Unless you shot a layer of clear after that, but i dont know how clear coat will react to vht base.

sorry for digging up an old thread, but do they still sell VHT at Mopac or Lordco?

no they don't have VHT at Lordco, they probably have it at Mopac though, they do have VHT at that car store in Metrotown however.... the one right next to the food court...
I saw some VHT spray there for sale the other month for $14..


and no I've never been hassled by cops for the darker tails, I didn't do it too dark.. maybe if I over did it I would have had problems.

I would suggest that you guys do a coat of gloss afterwards, as you can see in my pictures it looks pretty dull on my taillights, very matte.... I've gotten a new set of taillights since and left them stock.

Mopac supplies lordco with VHT, but lordco charges crazy $$ if you don't have a decent account.
