cuz thats how i like it...i dont like the all tint look and i hate the orange so it was either black out or red out...i had seen it on one other car...a red trial celica and thought it looked good...so basically what i am saying in a round about terms is its my personal preference

i cleaned it with windex and some prep all (basically rubbing alcohol) and did NO sanding...if you face is all up in it you can tell its not sanded...but it still looks good even up close...hard to explain...anyway i was a lil afraid to sand my taillights and scratch them up beyond repair (inexperienced in sanding tailights smile)
