Tint tail lights?

Should I tint my tail lights? For black top but bottom color idk what it's called. If someone could tell me I'd appreciate it. And what do you think I should do with my lights

I think you should leave the tailights the way they are. I personally like them like that. However you should get black style
Headlights as well as smoked fog lights would look sick on your car. If you want to do something to the back buy a sticker from am for 10 bucks that when you press the brakes it shows mustang. I have one of those. It's sick. Here's a picture. But mines a 98. It'll still look good on yours though.

However it's based on personal preference

Meh. Just get a body shop to spray them for you. Unless you like the un tinted reverse lights on the am ones.

Or if your good with a spray can grab some night shades and some auto clear coat with some polishing compound and get to work.
