    Arrow Tailight Blackouts

    I have been looking for some taillight blackouts for awhile. I know where to find them, but I am still pondering if I should get the Acrylic Covers (which are waaaay too damn easy to steal for $80 bones) Or the (window tint like) wrap that is heated to stick to the tailights (therefore much harder to steal.) The reason I say steal so much is because there are too many pricks that do that, as it happened to my buddies camaro, so i installed a proximity sensor on my TA just in case Let me know what your thoughts are. And where I can find some taillight tint on a website (besides the acrylic covers)

    Theres also the spray on tint. It goes on like spray paint, but it is transluscent. It is valled vht. You can get it at summit and many other places.

    Any clearcoat would work. I used some cheap 97 cent can from walmart and it has held up fine.
