so cant really find any taillights out there that I like so just want to smoke/tint the oem ones out but I know its illegal around here so really want to avoid anything permanent just incase I have to do something to make a cop happy, so am trying to find some of the tinted covers that just snap or bolt on and can be removed fairly easily without damaging the lights. anyone know if there are any of these out there?

You can get vinyl overlays which look pretty sweet.


Word of advice, if you've seen other cars with the smoke outs, then it's most likely legal. In MO, I know as long as you can see the colors shine brightly, they leave you alone about it.

Basically, as long as your car is still safe for you to drive, and safe for other drivers, you're all good here.

Boom is correct. I hate overlays, they never hold up, and seem to be made poorly. Take them to your local autobody shop. tell them you want to mix a smoke base into a product called Euroclear. Then have them spray 3 coats on the tails. it will give you a great look, that is legal in most states, and your factory bulbs will shine through like normal. Ask Boom, he has seen my color matched tails in person.

The law in states like MN where I'm at states that you can do whatever you want to your tail lights as long as they have a red reflector in/on them like OE ones do and that they are bright enough to do their jobs.

I would imagine most states that have tail light laws would be the same.

Mine are red vinyl overlays. couple small wrinkles, but hey, no one notices usually. did it myself with an extra pair of hands to hold the light. Even used the heat gun.

Working on a slightly different look for now. we'll see what I come up with.:cool:
