Re: Smoked headlamps and taillamps or not?

Ya I'd do a smoked look on the tail lights and the dark smoked headlights from American Muscle. The ones with the clear corners markers.

Blacking out the tails wouldn't look good with GB, but a smoked look (some tint) would look good.

I had smoked covers and almost wrecked one night. I have new edge dark covers in my garage. I would get HID's, though.
