From experience, just do the amber. It is way to much of a hassle to prep the center trunk lid for the future. Save yourself the money and heart ache and just remove the amber.
That really sucks, thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to at last clear my heads or tails

Edit: WIth the reason info posted I decided to clear the corners and tint the bottom of the tails. Is it necesarry to upgrade to L.E.D lights so people can still see when im braking and such?

if it helps any:



more pics can be found: http://s51.photobucket.com/albums/f3...amud/10-02-06/

(i realize my car is silver and yours is black, but thought another pic of taillights couldnt hurt)

people can still see me brake, quite easily. and with amber bulbs and no tinting on the top, theres no real change from stock. the only harrassment ive had from law enforcement was some highway patrol in texas trying to insist that my car didnt have reflectors on the back of it. no ticket. and it does reflect at night.

Doesn't matter, they still look great.

This also good to know.

This is off topic but since you have tint and I plan to have this done in the next week or so, is it hard to see your reverse lights at night

yeah. but it should be noted that my window tint is illegal (5%). to get around this i usually pay very close attention when getting into my car at night if im going to be backing up.

EDIT: for clarification for anyone reading -- the tint on the taillights obviously has no effect on reverse lights, as the reverse lights arent tinted. the tint in question is the window tint
