Don't spray paint your tails. It looks horrible compared to the genuine MHW smoked tails.

mhw tails look better than the startec ones .the startec ones look pink. spraying your tails dosent always turn out good. the red on the tail is the only thing i have een that looks good

are you fully blacking them out or smoking them?

If you do want to smoke them, its called VHT Nite Shades. I used it, it didn't look that bad for my winter beater. I also shaded the amber part of my 540's tails and it looks wicked IMO.

Just find a 2nd pair of taillights and try it; its a relatively cheap experiment. It's cheaper yet if you just do it, and get different ones if you don't like them.

And more! Sorry if the quality is shiite of the pics, the sun is so bright on my monitor I can hardly see it. This "early morning" thing sucks.
