LED tails, or no?


Recommended Posts

*NOTE*

The tails are not on the car anymore.

I had 1st gen LED tails on my GA for a couple of weeks back in the fall. I never tinted them, but what do ya think? Should I go back with the look, and tint them too?

I'm looking at the newer 2nd gen LED tails, the ones that look almost white. But I'll tint the top half black, and leave the white strip on the bottom. Example:

if they look just like that I say YES. :welcomeFP:

I know I'm in the minority, but I think the stock tails are the best looking.

I agree, tinted stockers look tight, especially with the backup light left alone.

But those LED tails match my headlights very well, especially when tinted like that.

I think VHT nightshades is the way to go. :lol2: I have 2 full coats and a third just on the outer part of my TLs and then a few coats of clear, then polished... Reason I had them done the way I did is because 3 full coats was SUPER black an the light was only slightly visible at night... in the daytime you couldnt see squat!!! LOL
