Tail light black out?

I'm looking for a nice set of tail light black outs. I have an IOM camaro and I don't like the red on orange look you know? Anyone know of a good place to go to find a nice set? Thanks!

Quick question though, are those actual lens or just tint film? It kind of says both. I wouldn't ask, but 30 bucks for four tinted lenses seems pretty cheap, and I don't want to mess around with film.

I highly recommend film over a lens. You can't tell the difference unless you are right up on it, cheaper and cops are less likely to bother you as it lets more light through. Here's mine:

The material we sell is a thick transparent vinyl material that forms to the lens. Regular vinyl is around 2 to 3 mil and this material is 17 mil, so it is very different from regular vinyl. It can be removed with no damage to the car. It's also available in different levels of tint, Tint (7%), Gunsmoke (12%), Smoke(17%) and Charcoal (30%). With the tint and gunsmoke you can still see the red lens color thru the material which helps avoid tickets if the local PD has a problem with tint - laws are different from state to state. The smoke material has a dark brown color to it and the charcoal has a black appearance. With the two darker colors you won't see the color of the lens except in direct sunlight. We have been selling the material since fall 2009 and have had no problems with it. We offer a 30 day return offer if the material is not what you are expecting or have any problems with night time vision.

Below is a picture of the charcoal tail light kit.

when i did mine i decided to order a roll of tint for about 25 bucks(i have enough to do at least 5 more camaros) I took out each tail light housing and covered it in tint, it came out perfect no bubbles or anything. Good Luck!
