I was thinking yes, but then that picture loaded all the way..

I dunno if you should tint them that dark. I would just say go with taillight covers.

I actually kind of like it now, just don't do it so dark as that picture..

It looks bad that the taillights are darker than the bezel around them on a black car.

yeah, I like it the more I look at it definitely. I knew that was a chop, but I didn't know how dark you intended to tint them.

I say do it, if you want.

I did the signals and side markers black with VHT Nite Shades on my old Camaro:

Not the best picture, but it's the only one I've got access to here at work.

are those still legal? I know I was going to buy headlight/taillight covers for my truck but theres a disclaimer saying they are illegal for street use; only for show or off roading.

i used to have covers for my taillights and never had any troubles.

I still have them for my headlights and never have any troubles, even when I leave them on at night.

I had rear-covers on my old Camaro, as well. Never had any trouble with them, either. Was once told by one of Decatur's Finest that they were "borderline legal" (or was it illegal...), but they didn't do anything.

I guess if anything cops around my way can be picky when it comes to these things so I could just take em off at night...I was looking at the GTS covers and they just snap over your existing headlights/taillights.

Yeah, that's sorta what mine do/did. I usually take off my headlights at night, just so I can see. It's very difficult to see with them on. The only times I leave them on are when I'm going like right down the street.

My taillight covers stayed on all the time. Well, till somebody stole one of them they did.

hmm after pondering it I would say tint them but as mentioned above (i think) dont tint darker then the bezel.

i might be getting some for my truck but im going to try and do headlights, corners, and taillights, if anything i wont tint it as dark nearest the bulbs so light will still come through.
