You could always tint your own with VHT Nightshades and clear over them. Some people don't like the VHT, but I don't think it is too bad, definately could be better, but not bad. This is a set I did for my friend. I originally did them for my truck, but got way to dark, and my friend liked them, so he got them.

Why did you spray over your back up light part?

I find them completely useless. I have a set of KC reverse lights and that takes care of all the light I need.

I used VHT as well. It's not the best but it looks pretty good to me. I mainly did it because my lights were really oxidized and faded, until I buy a new set after bodywork.

VHT looks ok ONLY if you clear over them. And vht tends to come out dark. I used black, red, and blue paint, clear, solovent mixed to tint, and cleared over for shine and protection. The red and blue were just a slight mix to accent the tint to bring the rd of the tails thru and kinda accent the paint. Cant really tell tho

Look on eBay. Some sweet tail lights. I'm having a hard time finding headlights I want that match the tail lights I want.
