What paint do you use to make your brake lights appear darker. I know septone makes good paint to do your engine, brakes, interior etc. Would love to buy SS lights which have the tint but they are like over $200 a set on ebay which is a little ridiculous.

Thanks,
Marlon

Tinting your lights may well attract attention from authorities (Police, RTA, MVA, etc) as vehicle will no longer comply with ADR standards that existed at time vehicle was manufactured.

Agreed. Police magnet.

Better pack some lube because some cop is going to have fun reaming you for tinting them that dark.

yer thats what i originally wanted was the ss lights but the price put me of. its called night shades get it at autobahn for about 13 bux and all you need is one very light spray on each of them and i also brought a clear coat and did about 4 coats of that to lighten them up and you get a better finish smoother an shinier:yeah: they look very dark in the pic but there not that dark you can see the lights through them

legally if it can be seen from 200m (the brake light), its ok.

just add some really bright bulbs
