Color Match Tail Lamp Bezel?

I know many people opt for the gloss black tail lamp bezels to get rid of the chrome, but I was wondering if anyone has color matched their bezels to the body color of their 2015 GC.

I'm thinking of blacking out the tail lights, but color matching the bezel on my Bright White GC. My thought is that it will break it up a bit and have a cleaner look, as aposed to having the entire tail light black.

So does anyone have pics of color matched bezels, or blacked out tails on a Bright White to give me a better idea of how it might look.

It would be greatly appreciated if someone could do a photoshop for me

Ive been thinking the same thing. Doing red on my redline SRT. Maybe one of our photoshop wizards can do something?

Personally I think black looks terrible if you don't tint the lens as well.

Color match taillamp bezel

I love my black bezels and the billet. Not to sure if color matching would look right.

Re: Color match taillamp bezel

I never understood the whole tinting your taillights mod.
Not sure why you would want to be seen less at night.

Actually at night it isn't a problem at all, The only time you can tell a difference is during daylight. It's really not bad at all as far as visibility.

Personal preference I guess. I've had almost completely blacked out tails on a previous vehicle I owned (painted not vinyl) and it was never really an issue. It does affect brightness to a degree, but not to the point that's it's actually dangerous. LEDs are bright enough to make the tint almost negligible, especially compared to non tinted lights with halogen bulbs. Also depends on the materials and processes used to achieve the desired darkness of the tint.
