Tinted Tail Lights By Darcness

Now the deal on the OEM smoked tail lights is great.  However, if you want something a little darker, you’re going to have to go somewhere else.  There is a guy on the MKV forums that goes by “Darcness” who can tint tail lights to your preferred shade and even do the amber turn signal modification while he’s at it.  The amber turn signal DIY is actually his own doing as well.  He does excellent work, as attested to by several forum members, and this huge thread.

Not my car, but featuring his work

I do not have his tail lights nor have I ordered from him, but I like what he does.  He does quality work.  He has many satisfied customers and is a forum sponsor.  In general, a good guy.  Check out that thread if you’re interested in purchasing a set of custom tail lights from him.  Basically, you pay for your tails plus a deposit.  You receive your tails, install them and then send back your old set and your deposit is refunded.

If you need some tail light work, send him a private message on GolfMKV.com under user name “Darcness”.  He can elaborate more on pricing.

 

Disclaimer: Please understand that if a situation or something arises, I am in no way tied to “Darcness”.  I cannot help you in transactions with him.  This post is just to let others know of a forum recommended source for tinted tail lights.

 

Window Tint

I finally got my windows tinted.  I’ve been putting it off for awhile but the promise of a hot summer finally convinced me that a mild tint would be worth it.  I wanted a little more privacy as well.  The tint really does make the car look better, more expensive if you will. I paid $160 dollars for it from a local shop called Solar Craft.  There are not too many reviews on Yelp but people seem to like them. They did a good job and used Suntek Carbon film.  There are certainly better films out there but you cannot beat the price and the lifetime warranty.  If you are in the Burbank area and in need of window tinting services, give them a try.  Friendly folks.

I’ll have a few snaps up as soon as I get them.
