I'd like to get my lights darker; I think some people call it night shade, or maybe that's a kit? Anyone pick something up at pepboys, autozone etc and have success? Also, has anyone gotten pulled over because of it?
Honestly you can buy it on Ebay... but I would get a shop to clear coat... but i am actually just getting my tinted so its not a problem if i get a fix it ticket... alot of tinting shops will do both for $30-50
Yeah, you should check out the DIY's for this Nightshading isn't as easy as just spraying the VHT on the lights and calling it a day. There is alot of work that will need to go into making it look proper.
Nope in Tennessee they could careless long as the lights are visible at night and during the day. I have mine nightshaded and never been pulled over. I live on the TN/VA state line I constantly go to VA to watch movies, and I have no trouble out of VA cops about any of my lights. :3_shiny:
It all comes down to pretty much where you live. In my area it is heavy with domestics. Probably 60% of the cars modified around here are domestics. So a lot of them have the slip over covers for the tail lights and head lights. So that might be a reason cops do not say anything. Also the cops around here could careless they just look for really loud exhausts, blue/red lights, and people racing that is it. Anything else done to your car they don't really bother you about.
The best advise is to ask people in your area about them and how cops handle niteshaded tail lights. It also wouldn't hurt to call the DMV. I am sure if I call one of ours they would probably say it's illegal but like I said our cops have better things to do.
Edit: If you do niteshade them and you're worried about them you could do like I do have an extra set of tail lights with you when you drive. So incase you do get pulled over and they say something you can just replace them. I always carry around my 05-06 tail lights in my back seat for VA cops.
