It's meant to be red and bright for a reason. But, if you want please continue and hope that someone doesn't rear end you and sue for not being able to see your modified brake lights. Because I definitely will if I ever end up hitting one of the pricks around here. Full tort insurance on my end. /end rant. Sorry if I offend anyone, but its just as bad as throwing hid drop ins in a halogen headlight.
I like everyone on this forum as well and prefer to keep it that way. You guys are a knowledgable and helpful part of my and many others modding journey. With that said I do feel a little under attack
. Tinting your lights is no different than many other mods. We all do mods to accommodate our personal style and preferences. Most of us have illegal mods in some form or another weather it be removing smog/emissions equipment, turning off cel's, altering ride height, blasting open wastegates, exhaust or sound system louder than the legal limit, dropping in hid's...exct, exct, exct. One can argue that any of these is a safety or emissions violation and is in essence illegal in some states
. I have never been behind a vehicle with tinted lights and felt like I was in danger of rear ending them. If you feel this way you should back off to a safe distance and pay closer attention. It is no more dangerous than romping on the skinny pedal on a public road. We are all guilty of that at some point but, are not bashing one another for it.

If it makes me stupid then, so be it
On topic and for those whom it dosent really matter if a car has tinted lights or not, it turns out the cracking was actually in the light itself. I re-did it and it is fine. I am waiting 48 hours before I wetsand and buff them out. I may have went a little too dark in which case I will do them again. I will post up some pics when they are back on the car. I am open to critisism like Keith and kirt put out there. I'm not mad at them. Thats what makes these forums and each of our unique styles so great
How fun would this be if we all thought the same on everything :eek:
