    Re: blacking out headlight and taillights.

    I live in NY, 20% tints all around except windshield. Only place I ever experience cop trouble is on the thruway sometimes (I-87). I also have cherry red taillights that I did myself and in my opinion looks a lot better than blacked out lights. I think blacked out lights look corny and cheap, but that's just me

    I know mad people around here and Roc with blacked out taillights that get away with it all the time, just not headlights. Most people want them the brightest they can get

    If the law states that "70% of light must come through on the front sides and back sides"... then you CANNOT LEGALLY use 30% tint!!!

    30% tint means only 30% of outside lights goes through the tint. NOT 70% LIKE THE LAW REQUIRES.

    Know your tint before you post!

    YES, it will pose a problem with seeing. 35% windshield will be darker at night than you think, at least until you get used to it... blacked out headlights will cause your lightbeam to be dimmer, thus making it harder for you to see at night while driving... that and the fact that they are ugly.

    i have tinted tail lights and 3rd brakelight.. not black, but a dark cherry red. they came out great and the brake lights shine trough.

    Re: blacking out headlight and taillights.

    Hello Community Members,

    Many people black out their tail lights to make their cars stand out. This can be done in many way--paint, tint and tape. The safest way, which is reversible, is to tint the headlights.

    1. Take out the tail lights and place them in an area where you can work and not damage yourself or anything around you. Place any screws you had to remove in a safe place.
    2. Clean the tail lights with window cleaner and clothes and dry them.
    3. Clean the tail lights with rubbing alcohol to remove film and buildup that has accumulated. Allow them to dry or dry them with a cloth.
    4. Lightly sand the lights a few times.
    5. Shake the tint spray vigorously and spray the lights from approximately six inches to one foot away until you achieve the desired tint.
    6. Peel off the tape you placed on the rear lights. Spray a light coat on these. Allow the paint to dry.
    7. Replace the lights on the car.

    Best Regards,
    Anthony Martello
