    Vehicle : insignia

    Trim : irmscher

    Engine : 2.0 cdti

    Year : 2009

    Default Tinting indicators

    While I'm sat here in Vauxhall getting car serviced i thought I'd buy another set of indicators to tint, any tips or tricks to tint them ?

    Looking at them they have an Amber unit inside so bulbs must be clear, So what's my best option can I use window film or should I use spray ?

    Vehicle : Vectra C OPC Estate

    Trim : OPC / VXR

    Engine : Z28NET

    Year : 2006

    I would spray...

    Folie would be a nightmare with all the uneven surfaces that the indicators have...

    I was lazy so I bought black tinted indicators on the bay for 30£

    Thet were ordinary amber sprayed with tint spray... But I didn´t care... It looked d*** good on the black preface I have before.

    I bought mine off eBay cos the cars black I bought fully black ones
    they look mint because it's the exact same color as the door trim

    the Amber bulbs do show through... A bit
    said on the advert that they are legal but probably not lol
