Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to remove tail light tint?

When done by a professional that has the needed tools and experience, the process can take about 20 minutes, sometimes even less. This depends on how well the tint is coming off and if glue residue is left behind or not.

Can I do taillight tint removal at home?

Theoretically you can remove the tint at home, but you need a heat gun and a lot of patience. The film should be taken off in one piece and really slowly, otherwise it would break into tiny pieces, making the removal even more difficult. You also need to be careful to not leave any glue behind, and if that happens, to remove it with professional solutions.

Can I make my red tail lights clear?

No, unfortunately this is not legal in the state of Illinois. The law states that the brake lights should emit a red light.
