Smoked Tails

Hey all,

So I just got the smoked taillight kit installed (Props Bill) and man does it look SEXY with my painted "H" emblems. I was so surprised at how well the light shines through and at the same time the lights look totally blacked out. I was all alone so I couldn't get pics of the reverse light on nor the brake lights, but I did get the directionals and with the lights on.

I'm so pleased, I had no Idea this would look so good!

Here's the first set of pics:

I know, that's what I thought! I had a friend put the car in reverse so I could see it today (as well as hit the brake, duh) and you can see the lights clear as day. Very Very impressed! Oh yeah, wanna do a new sig for me? The one I have is outta date...

Re: Smoked Tails

your left brake light is out!!!

oh and for reverse if you have a 5spd all you do is throw it in reverse..turn the car off, put it on II, to turn on the electrical system etc.. and they will be on

Re: Smoked Tails

The last pic up there isn't with the brakes on. That's just with the lights on. I'm posting a couple pics here in a sec with reverse / brakes.

Just order a smoked tail light kit from eBay. Precut ones are the bomb. They take like 15 mins to install alone with just the kit, a credit card, and a dish towel.

Re: Smoked Tails

i used the tail light tint that comes in a rattle can. it looks pretty good. it cost me 10 bucks. and the good thing is you can make them as light or as dark as you want them.

No joke man! It was but ass cold outside, so I actually took off my taillights to put it on. They were pretty easy, except you had to stretch em out to make em fit, which was kinda a pain alone. Thanks again for the kit man. Looks sexy! I think I may just get some non-precut stuff and smoke the light on the spoiler, complete the set you know?
