What's wrong with spray tint? Seemed to work fine.

I haven't had them done long enough to speak to any cops, though I doubt it'll be an issue. You can still see the bulb through it when it flashes. I didn't want to make it limo dark, but just enough so the orange turn signal doesn't clash with the red so much. As for the headlight, it does show some imperfection, but overall it's pretty clean.

Close up pics, lights on and off. Keep in mind I have 6000K HIDs installed too. As you can see there's lots of light coming through, and this is in broad daylight.

---------- Post added at 04:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:33 PM ----------

I had the covers from American Muscle, they were the biggest waste of money I every spent! They never stayed on, rubbed marks on my number then finally snapped off and banged my windshield at the track last week, I wish American muscle would stop selling them

No that dosent work I tried that when I did it to my car lol better off removing the tint period reguardless if it's tinted at all it will still be ur fault and it won't matter if it wasn't cuase the cop will see ur lights and say if u hadnt tinted ur lights u could have avoided the accident and also using headlights buffers don't work I tried that before

Pull the bumper, then using a pair of pliers you need to press the two white clips that hold the marker light in. It's seems confusing but pretty obvious when you see it. And they only go back on one way.

I use HIDs so the lights are plenty bright. Brighter than most, even tinted. Im gonna do a late night cruise and see how it is. If they're too dark I'll probably remove it. Hopefully not though

Next up is the deck lid panel in black and plastidip rims.

And another thing, I live in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. In the summer the sun sets around 10, we have light for another 30 mins and it rises again by about 430. So night isn't too big a deal, lol.

Take the here screws out of the fender cover, pull back and you have full access to the turn signals. Squeeze the two thing that hold it in and it slides out of a groove on the other end. (don't forget about unplugging the bulbs). I just swapped mind for some smoked ones and they took 5 mins each to swap.
