I'm with you on the night crap. It'* spooky. If you tint your windows, you shouldn't tint the backups. And put those Halogens in them. That should be a freaking law

Exactly. It'* hard to see out those boogers at night. But I can't help but feeling a sense of balance. Shouldn't all four corners (on my car, mind you) be the same? If I go woth clear fronts, then clear tails, or blacked tails with blacked fronts? I agree with SSEi95, keep the backups clear, and brighten them. I guess that would work. Clear backups, blacked out tails, and clear fronts. That'd look smooth, eh?

I have the blaked out tails with clear reverse and corners and I think it looks great. The front and rear lights are too different of a shape and too far apart to have to keep them all the same. Make them fit the area of the car, not each other.

When i tint my tails i'm leaving the backups white. They look nice like that! Gordy'* is hot (even though it was filthy when i saw it)

Speaking of his car'* butt, here'* a pic i took at the meet, got the bright sun, AND kept detail in the black, all without manual controls (silly digi cams). The full-size pic makes a HOT wallpaper on your computer.


Here'* my idea, i'm going darker, it totally changes my rear-end (no, not that rear end)
