Heads & Tails
 
Hi All,
I'm talking lights.... headlights and tail lights and all the various options for tinting.
Spray on... snap on, adhesive films..... legal and blatantly illegal.
I'm hoping we can share some knowledge of what works, what you've tried and loved or hated.
Pictures are appreciated and we all know they make the thread lively.
Prices, ease of installation and most importantly... where did you get the parts.

As for me ... me... I'd love to be able to snap on some blacked out covers fore and aft that I could just pop off if I was driving at night..... murdered out by day... perfectly legal at night but since I change my mind every other day.... lets see what's out there.

Happy Friday

I have smoked out tails and third light.. Black but can still see some red through them. At night the lights are perfectly visable, and brakes are fine even during the day.. have not had one problem with police or anyone yet. As for heads.. i am planning on gettin the GT styling snap on tinted covers within the month.. I like the idea of being able to snap them off when it is dark, but during the day offer a great look.
Here is a picture of my tails..

Here are mine with color matched tails. They were done by a vendor on another forums many years ago.

After seeing and hearing mixed reviews on the VHT I decided to have a body shop do mine. Only cost about 2X as much as materials would have cost me. I will never attempt to do my own after seeing how great a body shop can do them for cheap. They mix clear coat with whatever color you want so it looks great but the keep great transparency.
