From what I have read, yes. There is another similar item called black out or something that is off road use only because it's does not emit enough light. Same a PD

They were professionally painted by a custom auto shop. So I'm not sure what kind of paint they used.

There's a vendor on here that does amazing work that other's have/do use. But you have to send him your lights obviously and that's hard for some people that can't be without them for that long. Look around though. Your town probably has a place that does them as well.

Can somebody show me a policy exclusion for tinted lights? I handled insurance claims in NY for over 20 years and never heard of such a thing.

BTW - If you call your insurance company for specific information, make sure you get copies of the supporting documentation. Like in just about any industry that deals with the public, your chances of speaking to someone who actually knows what they are talking about are not that great.

I tinted just the bottom part of the tail light. I used a spray product called 'night shade'. The more coats you do the darker it gets. I put 5 light coats to get it to this shade.
