Just found it;

NightShades Spray Tint*-*Mitsubishi 3000GT*/*Dodge Stealth Parts


Man, I love this look, ...but not sure how much I trust myself to apply a nice, even coat, without over spraying. This looks would be great as a replacement cover.

You can take the whole light housing off and tape off what you dont want covered with Nightshade, when they paint them I think it is about 80% clear coat and looks great. I did mine with night shade and did not go that dark, I also taped off the reverse light so there is no paint on the clear portion at all

Keep in mind that most states require reflectors on the rear and sides of vehicles. These are built into the tail lights. This is giving the police a FREE REASON to stop you any place, any time. Which of course may not work out well for you if you have had even just 1 drink.


Love mods but I would never do one that gives a freebie stop to the cops.

a reflector that does not reflect light because it has paint on it is no longer a reflector legally.

That would look a ton better if they painted the muffler also.

^^^ This, and it will help keep the cops off your back..

I did mine a couple of weeks ago this way. Left the reflectors on the sides untouched.. just wanted to blend in the tails with the body color.

I can't believe that people want to reduce the effectiveness of conspicuity lighting.
Brakelights are all that separate you from the ballistic effects of narcoleptic dumptruck drivers coming home from a double-shift and triple tequila.

Heres a few pictures of mine. I used night shades on the four blinkers in the front, the 2 tail lights, and the third brake light.

This one is of the front 2 blinkers without lighting.
[/IMG]

This second one is with the side markers not lit up as well...you gotta look close


This one is with them tinted and lit up...you cant even tell in my opinion
[/IMG]

This last one is of the back lights lit up with the night shades on as well
[/IMG]


The pictures arent showing up for me so if they dont show up for you guys let me know and ill try to figure it out
