I'm pretty sure the reverse lights aren't for seeing at night lol in my opinion they are to warn other drivers and pedestrians that you're backing out lol. They don't light up a whole lot

They lit up the road behind me before I tinted them... But if you are talking about warning others that you are backing up then they still work fine even with the tint

Take the taillights off of the car. You can get every edge evenly that way, and it's not hard to do

If you don't use the clear it's a more matte black color. If you use it it's gloss. It all depends on how you want it

Here's my smoked tail lights I bought from am

I decided to go with the tint from AM seems to be the darkest look with the most visible light to come through. I could be wrong but thats just what ive found! Ordered it yesterday along with black rocker stripes and the 8 inch black antenna! gonna be fun to put it all on thanks for all the advice guys
