Question Pictures of Smoked Out Lights?

Thinking of smoking out my rear lights with some VHT Niteshades. Just not sure if I should just do the red parts or everything. Either way my reverse lights don't work, so it'll just be a difference in appearance. Anyone got pictures of their rears blacked out? I saw a newish black Tacoma (I think it was) driving down the highway the other day with chrome 22", rear all blacked out, and some Heat flags and it looked great. The reason why I was thinking of not doing the reverse lights is because I've seen lights with it done and I honestly think it might look better without them. And how would someone do that? Do you tape out the reverse part or what? Well, thanks.

Thanks. Yeah, I think with a black truck the white reverse lights will help the taillights still stick out a bit. Thanks for the tips.

And I saw this video recommend in a Nissan 350Z website:

i would also check with your local police department, some places are real d*&%s about having tinted lights, just a thought before you actually go and do it.

Thanks, but down here in Miami just about every other car has some sort of "illegal" mod. HID's in none projector headlights, modified exhaust, darker than legal window tint, etc. So, cops don't really bust you for anything like that unless they pulled you over already and they don't like you. I put 2 coats on my Crown Vics taillights and got pulled over at the night and the cop didn't even mention them.

Heres mine. A buddy of mine sprays them with automotive clear with translucent black mixed in. The finish is as shiny as your trucks paint and the sun doesn't make them look crappy over time. I wanted mine done with a lite coat as i can't stand not being able to see the brake lights well but i wanted the look. I also swapped out the bulb for LED.

Before:



After:




Pic taken next to a stock ford taillight you can see that it was toned down but just a bit.



I also did the mirrors. The cab lights came like that....
