I like that look, clear and tint....now to get the guts to take apart (or shall I say attempt to take apart) the tails, clear them, and then attempt to tint them without fudging them up...

This sounds like a job for you Dillcc since we live close

cleared and tinted looks good on the photoshop above, i would keep it not too dark if that is the route you go with it. I just dont care for the BLACK look

I say clear and tint.

I still can't figure out that car that drove through Elberton with the tails like that.... it will remain a mystery!
