Don't tint the reverse lights. I only have 35% tint, and even with my halogen backups (250% brighter than yours) it'* still kinda hard to see.

Wouldent hurt to see about local laws in your area.
Some states wont let you cover or tint your lights.
tinting is not expensive---tickets can be.

When you get closer to doing it, let us know for some last minute pointers. I've done 2 Bonnevilles now, Deathrat is about to do his second (same car twice), SSEi95 has done it, and a couple others now. There'* a couple tricks, but it'* really easy.
Actually I'm doing them for the Third time really!
Here'* some pics: BEFORE

FIRST JOB

SECOND JOB

This summer I will do them again due to "weathering" of the Clear Coat & Tint.

Ahhhhh!!!! There'* a dinosaur turd on your car again!

You didn't go as dark as I did on mine and Josh'*. On ours, it'* hard to see any red or yellow except on a really bright day, but we started with the 'lined out' SSE/SSEi lights to begin with. Are you going darker this time, or the same as they are? Tell me how hard it is to get that stuff off.

A lot of "Elbow Grease" & "patience" along with some good solvent works great. The problem is using the right balance of solvent without distorting the plastic lens underneath! I think I'll go dark as I can get it this time too. Probably buy the "NightShade" this time.
