I noticed Candian Hemi Pride has a LED bar.. I also know that if someone tints their tail lights too dark, it becomes more so illegal DEPENDING on how dark you go.. But I'm curious, is it NOT illeagal at all when you still CLEARLY have a fully visible brake light, and turn signals? As in an LED bar with turn signals?
That is what I have been hoping. I haven't been bothered yet with cops knowing my truck around here as it sticks out. But my reverses are clear on the lights and my light bar has running lights, breaks, turn signals and white reverses. So technically it does work as everything needed. If you look at people that have modded and shaved the hell out of their trucks with shaved tails, they only have light bars and it meets all requirements.

Haven't had trouble at all yet and this is my 3rd style of tint. 1st was just a crappy lighter tint that I only cleaned and sprayed without clearcoat so it faded after a few months. I then re-did that set and had someone back into my truck and had their spoiler shatter the passenger side tail. So bought used tails and this was the outcome. My lights are still very easy to see. In the pic I just have my truck in park, no brakes on. Tonight I will take some pics of my rear end to post up.

I beleive this was 3 strong coats.
-light wetsand,
3 coats with 15-20 mins in between coat.
waited 2-3 hours for dry time (was the perfect temperature outside)
did like 5-6 coats of clear coat with 10 mins inbetween, I decided if I had the cans.. Why not keep putting on.
-Let them sit over night
-Lightly wetsanded if there was any small imperfections.
-Had Mothers finishing polish which I buffed right into those lights with those serious force.
-Wipe them clean.
-Apply a good wax.
Donee

Just recently I chipped the passenger side one when I was doing a scrap metal run, metal pole banged the top of passanger side one and chipped it a tiny bit, only can tell when searching. Might try wetsanding and touching up.

When I did my current set.. I still had my old broken set on my truck until they were fully done, also installed led reverse lights in the process. 2013 tails may be more expensive though and harder to find a good used set. I payed $70 for a nice used set I grabbed.

Nope.. As you can see in the one pic where I am playing in the mud, I taped them off and left them clear.. Same with the cab lights up above. The 06-08 tails are the 3d lights, and I thought it would look good clear, which it did.. Just simply taped it off when I did the tints. Also draws less attention from the authorities because they might atleast give me the benefit of the doubt as I want to make sure everyone is aware I am reversing. Even though now with led tails and the 60" light bar.. My reverse is almost as bright as my HID's
