i would keep the red lenses in with the red car... i think the all-clear would stand out too much for you and look tacky.. you would be best off just clearing the ambers

You do have a point there....we could always photoshop a pic of cleared tail onto our cars to see how they look.... I was thinking that the red is a dif shade from my car....Hmmmm....

I think this looks absolutely phenomenal!!! I'd be too afraid I'd screw something up if I tried this though, even with the informative write-up. Great job!

Joe.

I'm contemplating taking the lenses all apart and nightshading on the inside before putting everything back together. I'd nightshade everything but the backup/turn signal area (that is normally cleared)... And I'd leave the red lenses inside...

BTW, those LED lights look like they worked great. Hows the angle brightness. Could you take a picture from the side a bit?

yeah...i was wondering the same thing. LED'* are definitely directional. i have played and tinkered with LED'* since I was little...i used to figure out ways to put them into my lego cars as headlamps and taillamps...even installed the appropriate resistors between the battery packs and the LED'*...
