Head / Tail light tinting

What would be the best way to black out my head and tail lights?

VHT Niteshades Spray Tint is what most guys use here but before take this rought i would check your local laws about tinting.
the headlights i would not do at all but there are covers for the headlights that i know of for the 1st gens but im not shure about the 2nd gens.

headlight tinting will be pretty much illegal where ever you are. Get covers for the headlights, and either Nightshade or Pactra also makes a spray tint for the rears.

Tinting and covers are pretty much illegal everywhere. Kinda defeats the purpose of lights when you can't see them, especially from a distance. I've seen more than one rear end collision cause people could not see the brake lights during the day time.

If you do it right, there aren't any issues. A light tint using Niteshades and upgrading to LED bulbs and you'll still end up brighter than stock. If you completely black out the back end to the point where nothing shows through, yes, you'll end up with another car parked in your trunk. Comes down to common sense and what the law will allow.

The best way is for you to decide. There are a few different ways, if you search they will come.

Not many, you just have to hope that someone's doing it worse than you and they're the one who gets pulled over. Honestly, i've been stopped 3-4 times since tinting my tails and never had the cop mention anything to me. It could be the additional 18 LED's i added to the trunk section...but more likely that i didn't go crazy and completely black out the tails.
I used common sense.
