Checked out that other thread and don't see any photo's. Can anybody post it on here? I'm curious how dark the charcoal is vs the smoked.

Thanks for the direct links GP. After making an account over there I could view them.

I think I'd get smoked myself. Looks like a lot of people are going with the charcoal. I've heard stories about people getting in car accidents because their tail lights where too dark to see break lights. How true this is or not I'm sure police would favor on their side. Anybody else on the fence about doing this?

As this could be a valid and true statement in most cases. My own experience (before I go on), I expect a Mod to say something here about this relating to safety issues.

I tinted the tail lights on my Mustang years ago, very dark. I haven't had someone rear end me yet. Not saying it won't happen, but tinting your tail lights would be considered an "illegal" modification, therefore the possibility of an accident is greater to an extent. Do what you want to do and consequences will follow. Plain and simple...

I agree that it is a safety risk to being rear ended during a sunny day, but in my case the brake lights are not covered at all as I do not have a titanium model and the part I covered are just reflectors .

I would have covered the whole thing but not much happens where I live and the police are a little bored so they look for any reason to make their day a little better and yours a lot worse

What shade did you decide to go with?
Charcoal - all that red in the rear needs to go! :D

Gonna do a 'classy' blackout on the car - dark tints (window/lights), pdip here and there (grill - one of these days!).
