Until you get rear-ended and sued or pulled over and fined... the slit is pretty obvious and the light has to be diminished.

I thought about doing that with tint to the side marker lights to mimic the LED versions everyone is using. Cheap and easy.

As for the tail lights, I'm not sure. The lights don't blend in as they aren't flush with the surface.

Actually the light it self shine pretty good during the day I had no issue seeing it at 1000 ft which is the regulation. At first I did put tint on the strip but that was way to dark so I took the tint of the light strip and it shows real good on a sunny day with the sun hitting it

I did that to my v6 and put a thin piece of vinyl tape and put 4 heavy coats then took the tape of a put I light coat and it did mimik the led side markers except they were not as bright as the led but it did the trick.

while they look cool, its an accident waiting to happen (pun intended).

normally, getting rear-ended would be the fault of the 2nd car, but in this case, that might not be true.

okay so today I see a California Patrol Car passing thru my neighborhood on a rutting route so i decided to ask him about the tail lights. I asked him if he would stop me for having these tail lights. At first he said no off the bat because he thought they came like that and after i told him i painted them he went on a looked closer and said well by law if you cannot see the taillight more than 1000 ft than its not going to be dot approved and illegal, I asked him if he can get on his car and drive 1000 ft to see if he sees my hazards blinking during the day time. When he came back he said they where visible at 1000 ft and that they don't look as if they where modified and he thought it was just there new design but that was just his opinion but just wanted to add this.
