Looks nice. How bright are the brake lights? I had similar tinting on an older Trans AM and the brake lights were very dim. I actually got rear ended one night and the guy that hit me said he didn't see my lights come on. It was also a black car so that didn't help much either. I don't think anyone will miss that bright yellow which is quite nice. What is that color called? Have a nice 4th of July!!!

I painted my lower fascia. Came out great. Just take time on masking out the area well with pin stripe tape or the like and newspaper off the rest. Under $20 well spent

I like the before pics better, but that's just me. I think the contrast between the yellow/red lenses looks better, but good job if you like it.

I believe NYS law states two rear lights that illuminate red and visible from 1000 feet. Mine are blacked out and have had no problems whatsoever. ..Looking good on the yellow vette with black halo...and paint the fascia to finish it off

I might be the only one here with this opinion, But I like this shot the best, Not a fan of the painted Halo at all. Halo car color makes the car flow so much better in my opinion. Like the BSM delete.
Mr.Bill

Like this shot best.

DOT federal regulations require a minimum of 2 red reflex reflectors on the rear of all vehicles, so these black out lenses are illegal in NY and every other state.
I'm personally not a fan of the black out look and have seen plenty of them during the day where the brake lights are barely visible. I say if you want to run them, do so at your own risk but don't come on here complaining if you get a ticket or rear ended.
