Whoa, sometimes covering the smallest amount of space on a car can bring about huge differences!

For this GMC Sierra 2016 the expert Window Tintz technicians applied the Lamin-x GunSmoke film on the taillights and headlights. The Lamin-x product is made of a strong yet flexible material 12 mils thick; and the “gunsmoke” color is lighter than most of the tint shades offered by the company. This project added a bit of color to the outsides of the lights while hardly impacting their performance outward.

We were impressed with how it looked, aesthetically on terms of the car’s exterior appearance, in the end. However there are other, more applicable reasons for applying tint to your car lights. The tint film protects headlights from getting sandblasted, or cloudy, by keeping them looking brand new with protective film applied directly to the lens. So it’s for more than just looks: the film coating protects the lights themselves also.

This full-size, heavy-duty pickup truck is the mechanically identical cousin to the Chevrolet Silverado. The GMC Sierra name was first used in 1987, and General Motors continues to manufacture the model for its lasting popularity. Americans like their trucks, especially the big ones, and the Sierra is no different. What makes this model different is the tinted headlights and taillights. Some may wonder what the difference is, but we see a big broad change in the overall impression when looking at this truck from the front or rear. The headlights area, for instance, is not just dead space any longer. It adds that smoke color to a palette that includes a bit of green and red (in the grill logo) along with a lot of silver and grey.

Ditto with the smoked taillights, shown above. What is not displayed here is what they look like when the brake pedal is depressed. The light is not as startlingly bright to drivers behind; it still works and is effective in letting them know you’re slowing, it just looks better and more cool than the vehicles around.
