Has anyone blacked out their tailights? If so could you post pics? I really want to do something with my tail lights but the options are slim

I should just photoshop it to see how it looks. I live in IL though so I'm sure they'll give me shit for it.

I live in Illinois and I had smoked tail lights on my Silverado and I had no problems. They were L.E.D. so they were bright enough to show up even during the day even though they were smoked. I have known people who have been warned and forced to change because they had their tail lights tinted so much you could barely see the brake lights at night, let alone during the day. The key is visibility. I am not sure but I believe it is still up to individual Officers to make the call on whether or not your tail light tint is too dark. Just use common sense, as long as your lights are still visible I wouldn't think you would have a problem. I do however come from a smaller city where things are a little more relaxed than in bigger areas.

i used rustoleum "lense tint" ONE coat no clear or anything and it came out great
Are yours glossy like a clear coat?

I definitely want mine glossy like the paint so they blend in and flow with the lines of the car.

I was quoted $100 plus shipping by a guy who does a ton of work for the G8 GT guys and his work is excellent. This is for the tail lights and side markers.

Has anyone used the vinyl kits on eBay? I used them one a Mustang years ago and they looked great, but the stang taillights were flat.
