Rub off the smoked sprayed area off so you have more light output

Go get some super fine wet sanding paper and remove the tint spray from the reverse parts of the lights.

Im used to driving an suv so i am in the habit of literally opening my door and sticking my head outside as i reverse...if u analyze the surroundings before you park or leave, and use your side mirror, you will avoid any obstacles. Although it does look like some sort of trick doing this with a manual...its hilarious lol

Ford does have the rear view camera in mirror option. It was only $300 but i didnt opt for it since i wanted my gt500 wing and the stock camera is IN the oem wing

I seen these at the S.E.M.A. show in Las Vegas

No wires to worry about.

QuickVu™ -- The World's Easiest to Install Rear View Camera!





The long part goes on the licanse plate and holds the camera. The screen is put anyplace you want inside the car to view.

The Modul has "A" & "B" in case you want to use two cameras.

They said the price should be around $300 for the set. Not bad for not having to desturb your wiring in your car at all.

Buy a pair of stock tail lights and sell the smoked ones.

It's reasons like this why I question a "cool-ness" factor over practical. Folks tint the headlights, which drops the lighting by a good percentage, but claim it looks cool. Not cool when you cannot see!

Careful, people get upset when you disagree...

You can buy tinted tails with the reverse light still clear. Running legal tint seems to help as well

Our tails are bright as piss along with the clear lights. I'm in love with the AM tint. It's dark when you want it but the light shines through pretty good. Now smoked headlights are stupid. You gotta see at night so let them be. I upgraded my actual headlights and I love them. Cool factor of a HID white yet legal and still all halogen. Even though I broke a clip:/

Nice! Love the retro window louver! Sounds like pull through parking and getting better with the side views.

Back into parking spots from now on. Problem solved.... as far as your driveway, you should be pretty good at getting up and down your own driveway so it really shouldn't be a huge issue...and if is really that dark on your driveway you should be putting in flood lights or motion activated somethings at least. not only for your driving but for general safety and security... if it's your house then you should have done it already, if you live with you parents then safety is an easy sell to mom or dad...I have also seen plenty of people used solar lights lining the drive, cant go wrong there.

+1.... headlight tint is dangerous. I use the caps from AM, they slide on in 10 seconds and I can take them off in 5 seconds if im going out at night.
