Switched out 1 to see the difference
Lights off

Lights on

Fully switched:




I know some people won't like it but I love it, going to try and do some debadging and plasti-dipping this weekend on the trunk. I will post pics if I'm able to get it done this weekend. I also have the rexpeed CF inserts for the reflectors in the rear bumper to install. Let me know what you guys think! :)

I always thought tinted tails look great on white cars. Just my preference I guess. Thanks for the input though

Were they bought tinted or did you have it done/ do it yourself? I tinted a set of head and tail lights for my s10, but those lights were ugly to begin with. I can see the appeal if that's what you're into, but personally If I had lights as nice as the evo's I never would have considered hiding them. Plus I did mine to murder it out. Black on black on black.... gorgeous.

Yeah I agree with everyone else, blacked out tail lights are for neons and cobalts. Evos are sexy the way they came

why people do this to ralliart tails is beyond me. You can buy a second set of normal lights for 50-100 bucks tint them and sell the ralliarts for 200 and net a 100-150 profit and have the same look.

Haha same exact thoughts :) yeah I wasn't sure if I would like them or not but the price was good ( more for shipping because I'm in Alaska) but I really do like them, I will take some better pics in the day when it clears up around here

I actually bought them from marcusdubya77 on here, he sprayed them himself. I've gotta say he did a great job

I have a set like that too but I had to take them off as I live in VA. I haven't decided if I'm gonna sell them or not. I loved them on my RR. I even VHT'd the middle light. I'm probly gonna try to trade+$ them for some ralliarts as I have the 08 pink ones.

I actually like it too, just find them a little too dark though cause you cannot see at all the interior.

I did mine as well, but because I hated the red glass/housing. I used a film (Not sure what you used) so when lit, lights still quite bright and can see the inside (not the redish anymore though), on topnofnthat, I combined it with the black reflector LEDs, and smoked 3rd brake light... :wackoff:

Will post a picture once back from Thailand for you guys to see judge.

i like it :D

Did you buy those or do them yourself? Heres mine with 4 coats of vht nightshade, 4 coats of clear and 4 coats of polish and wax.

This is why I added the black LEDs reflector..... Those stock red reflectors are not of my taste at all.... Specially when all the rest is blacked out... Don't you think?

Let me know if you want a pair, still have 1 new pair home ;)
