here are some pics of mine. id say if its much darker it may be easier to get a junkyard set. with the 30% they are just seethrough during the day in the one with my door open those are my flashers, reverse lights and breaks all caught with the slow shutter of my blackberry. its about 5pm with the sun facing them.

only before pic i have. was working on the lock





nighttime under the streetlight, off.



night time with flash to simulate headlights



night time just running lights



hope this helps. we have pretty restrictive inspections here due to all the steel mills, and i passed.
Do you have one during the day with them off?

That actually doesn't look bad at all. Good light output, you didn't overdo it. However, you really need some clear coat and a buffing.
