Lets re-visit the tail light thread...
 
Anyone know why the tail lights are red? is the plastic red? or is it red paint?

I'm thinking if i can separate the housing and dremmel off the red paint, i can have a clear housing that will show through better with Daniel's tints.

any thoughts?

P.S. i have red LED's in the tails as an attempt to make them brighter. so i dont care about the color of the lenses themselves.

nevermind... its red plastic...

ok lets brain storm... how do we lighten the stock bulb location and lenses?

I like the color of daniel's tails (they are amazing) and i don't like the multiple LED look that the aftermarket ones have... so what can i do?

Daniel Paints them so basically here's how it is. He has a special formula that he sprays. They shine through as if they weren't painted. Get what I mean? So they shine perfectly through.

If people are concerned about safety, medium tint would be the darkest I would go... there is this idea floating around of getting the housing tinted dark but tape off where the light is dispersed and have that area tinted medium.. basically not as dark as the rest of the tail light.

open a set of tail lights. get them over to an LED guy and lets get some leds that go INSIDE the stock housings. the charger guys do it, i think the 300 guys too.

flashtech, that who did the Jeep Heads for me.

Those Charger tails look great Rob!

My tails are tinted really dark too and although a fair bit of light output is lost I don't think anyone is going to rear-end me *touches wood*...

Police also haven't pulled me over and they are anal about tints over here.
