Default tinted tail lights

what are peoples thoughts on tinted tail lights. I have a 94 SE. I had a set or the plain red and orange tails, along with the ssei tails. Should i practice on the red/oranges and if those look good sell the sseis? I know that if I do tint the lights to leave the reverse lights....

I say try it on the regular lenses first. If that works out good do the SSEi lights too. The bars in the SSEi lights looks pretty sweet when tinted. I used the VHT Nite Shades from jegs.com and it worked out good. Just gotta watch out for 2 things. First, VHT Nite Shades is kinda runny and needs to be put on in alot of thin coats, and 2, be very careful when pulling off the lights because the anchor posts seem real easy to break.

Visit my website by clicking on the www icon at the bottom of this post. I have pics of before and after, as well as a procedure. I've done 2 Bonnevilles now. Mine and JSeabert'*. Both came out great.
