Quick Question - Tinted or Kandy colored sidemarkers (Only over LEDs)

Quick Q for who ever is reading,

if ONLY the portion over the LEDs... which do you think would look better. Mine is a summit white car.

-Tinted Lenses over LEDs

-Kandy Transparent Paint over LEDs

Thanks man! Yeah I have more pics. I shall upload them tomorrow.

I like them equally, and I'm a really indecisive person so it usually comes down to others opinions once I've narrowed it down. So far I have 2 for tinted and 0 for kandy :P

Ordering tomorrow so I hope I get more thoughts by then.

Talking

I opted for the clear lens sense the color of the diode is white it tends to blend in with a white car more i think especially from a distance but if i had to chose between the tinted or kandy I'd go with the tinted..I had my paint guy come in 5 diodes from each end on the back ones cause there an inch longer than the front ones and i wanted them to be the same in length and squared off the ends instead of angling them. If you have them painted make sure they use a blockout primer under the paint or else the light will bleed through especially on white. AAC doesn't do this i know cause on my set i had them painted and one of the back ones had 5 flickering diodes i had to send it back and they sent me one of there painted ones and it bleeds like crazy, its really noticeable at night now I have to have it repainted the right way..
