94-98 Tail lights

Just wondering your opinions on these because my car has these chrome smoked lenses.

I have several options because a friend says I have a some OE if want them. Meaning I could. 1. Do nothing 2. Paint what I have. 3. Use OE and the X factor being color choice... I'm leaning toward OE
in black, Saleen style.

Anything is better the Chrome trim ones. They look like you bought them at autozone.

Was also thinking I could move these along on CL, and recoup some cash from purchase too.

You tinted OE lenses or after market clear lenses? Was told there was rattle can stuff for that, sounds shady to me 

Yeah there are plenty of those rattle can examples on you tube. I went vinyl tints on the back and a tinting company did my heads and fogs

No problem with as long as your car has been around aftermarket companies should have almost everything ud ever want for lighting. I tried dark light covers for my head lights but they just looked cheap and they were cheap I broke one and tried adjusting the other and snapped the tab off of that one and I am not a Hercules

Lol I've noticed for sure! Was talking with my buddy and we both feel like the OE horizontal stuff kind sets 94-94 5.0 cars apart from the 4.6 cars. Don't think I've ever seen a 96 up car with 94-95 tail lights..?

Re: 94-98 Tail lights

well you can't go wrong with a straight up smoked look check online for vinyl tints you can put onto your car and give me a heads up on when you do because i have a few pointers for that since the tints seem to shrink when they send them in the mail. OEM lights blackened you can't go wrong with if you are interested in seeing the results let me know I will get off my *** and go take some pics for ya

I would love to see how they turned out! No rush though as it will be next week at the earliest before I can get my hands on the lights. I actually saw some on a Tahoe that were rattle canned and dude was not happy cause it was coming off, which is probably a prepping issue more then a product issue.

Re: 94-98 Tail lights

looks good I know that if you aren't careful you can put too much black on and the lights don't show through at all

They do look sweet! You used a gun to spray them, or rattle can. I have a friend with the stuff to do them with gun but it's hard to get him motivated sometimes. I rattle Canned the ones on my first car and they came out 'ok' but not perfect.

This is what i want for front head lights (probly smoked glass but still undecided) but if i cant find tail lights to match (in the 94/95 horozontal look) i dont want to do the fronts. I think it would look funny to only have the front done and not the back.

The only horizontal ones I've ever seen were OE. those fronts look like they'd match Euro style tails better. I have herd people talk about separating the lenses and wet sanding the red out of OE style lenses until they were clear. Don't know if there's any truth to it though.

I love the new headlights Audi is using with led, it's really ez to go overboard and end up with something tacky looking. Like my taillights lol but they look fantastic when done correctly though
