Well a couple updates, yesterday I was pulled over for my tail light tint. Didnt get a ticket but I had anticipated this and went ahead and ordered some much brighter LED bulbs to shine through the tint about a week ago. These came today.
Im gonna give them a shot, I also ordered a different set of LED bulbs to put in too, http://m.ebay.com/itm/310808502524?nav=SEARCH&sbk=1
, waiting for them to arrive should be here in a day or two. I only ordered them because I think the design would be cool if it shows up through the tint. Whichever works best ill order the amber and reverse to replace the rest of the bulbs. Also some bad news. After work this morning I started her up and she had the dreaded check engine light on. On the way home she was running like she was stuck in 3rd or something for like 10 min, until I pulled over, put her in park, and then turned her off. When I turned her back on she ran fine but the engine lights still on. I got the code read and its a transmission code. Its a P1763; governor pressure sensor too high. So thats my next thing to figure out. =/
Edit: so it sat all day and the light was on when I came to work, went on break and now my engine lights off.
