I'm thinking about getting dark smoked headlights and tailights and storing the originals would that look good? On American muscle they have "dark" smoked headlights but just smoked tailights... Would they be around the same darkness? Does anyone have these? Pics / comment plz

Re: Tell me what you think?

Sweet cobra!

I imagine that the tint level would be roughly the same. The taillights for mine were just labeled as smoked and they are pretty dark so you should be fine.

I looked I like the headlights. Does anyone have smoked tails? I've looked at the tint but didn't know what to do. Also on American muscle they recommend sealing the headlights. Should i do that?

I had tinted tails but was getting pulled over too much so I bought stock tails again. But mine were spray tinted. The vinyl tint is just an overlay so you can take them off. Check out sonicpony03's tails. He has vinyl tint.

If you look in my garage I have some tinted taillights on my car from American muscle.

Re: Tell me what you think?

I'll make it easier then. I'm going to set my avatar as the taillights so you can see them.

black just shows its imperfections far to easy. I owned one for 5 years nearly and dont plan to again anytime soon.

Yeah there from American muscle. There for the Foxbodys but I'm sure the new edge one's will be about the same.

Spray tint tailights
I have sprayed mine about 5 different times taping off different spots blacking out different parts changing the looks till I got the perfect look I was looking for

The main reason spray > the rest just take a little lacquer thinner to it and it's right back to stock
Also it's like 5$ a can

This is how I finally decided mine should look

I don't honestly remember it was autozone stuff lol
The key is extremely light coats (spray from further away) and lots of them
But to make the cops happy I did mine in a gradient from almost no tint on top to completely black on bottom and I think it looks sick and nobody else has that look

Why the little blower? lol...

Car looks good man.

My wife and I have been running vinyl tint on a single set of tails for several years now. I had them on my old car for a while, then to the cobra, and now on her GT. Never had a problem with a cop to be honest.



tint on left versus stock tails on right. They look really dark on the white, not near as dark on the red.

Same exact tails on the cobra:

Same exact tails on the GT

Re: Tell me what you think?

here in ohio it needs to be visible for 500ft away, not sure if that's y sum of you guys were having trouble. those laws are supposed to be tools for law enforcement, not to site joe blow for stupid shyte. neway, i think the tint looks great as long as it doesnt obstruct too much light
