TAIL LIGHT COVERS

Hi everyone,

I did research all night and day but couldn't find exactly what 'm looking for. I am looking for black tail light covers not the vinyl on SW Camaro. I want something temporary because I get easily bored so I can go back to stock if I want to. Please post yours and It will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I got you bro let me dig up the thread.

EDIT: Here you go! http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=291838

Get the darker shade. The OP got the lighter shade. If you can get some RS tail lights you can get even darker.

There used to be a thread on here about reusable stickers that could go on tail lights. Looking for it, but think that is what the op is talking about

Maybe this is what your looking for. They are a bit more expensive than the vinyl film though.

The covers like the GTS covers are black plastic and not transparent. You'll likely get a ticket or in a wreck. I have the darkest tint that big worm offers. Super dark but when you hit the brakes its transparent. No issues with LEOs. Here's a pic

Yes I'm digging it but wanted to see it on the car to judge the look.

Hello Angie, Thats one of my concern if how much lights it will emit on those plastic lens. I had the charcoal tint on my previous after market tail lights and they look great as well as the quality. I really like the look of your car. Do you have pics from far distance? How is the front side markers look like since it AMBER in color they look the same color as the rear(RED) with the tint on?Thanks

I went with these...they look and work great on a black car. Just static vinyl with tiny perforations in it. Every few days I walk around and smooth a few of them out if the temp outside changes drastically. The kit is everything but the headlights and priced real cheap if you decide you don't like it.
....Reggie over there is a good guy

I use to have the GTS covers over the headlights. Driving at night was impossible. Visibility was maybe a car length ahead of you even with brights on. I have the tint now and its amazing. If you plan to have the covers on your tails, expect a ticket and maybe a wreck. There's a reason why they are "show only"

Angie7, I should have listen to you, I installed the sidemarkers,reverse light and the zl1 spoiler the darkest tint from bigworm and theyre awesome, the covers(plastic) on the otherhand was a POS, crap whatever you want to call it. It didn't last for an hour on my car I took it off and throw it to garbage! I just placed my order from headlight armour (stealth)for my tail lights. ..
