Default black outs/smoked lenses

Where is a good place to get black-outs for bonnevilles? Do they even make them anywhere? I have a green '96 SLE and I think it would look worlds better with smoked tails. Does anyone have smoked headlights? Does it mess with the sentinal at all? I know this is a lot of questions, sorry. Just want to know. Thanx.

There are smoke headlight covers available, not sure where you can get them though.

There are no tail light assemblies made for our cars (other than stock). To get tinted tail lights your best bet is to get some VHT Nightshades from someplace like jegs.com and use that. Alot of us already have with good results.

Your sentinal sensor should be located on the dash at the base of the window so smoking your lights won't affect it at all.

VHT nightshades for the tails...and sorry to report but GTS covers for the lamps are difficult if not impossible to find for 96+, they have em for 92-95.

Don't tint your headlamps tho...bad call. There are plenty of threads and articles on tinting tail lamps...do a quick search and good luck

Actually they do (or DID) make taillight blackouts, I have a pair of Lunds sitting in the garage, but I think they only fit 92-95.
