i wouldn't use black that's just dangerous... i would suggest using the smoke dip.


this way you can slowly darken your lights

Go check out YouTube. I know i have seen some videos of people doing that to their tail lights and you can decide if you like it or not.

The Smoke Dip looks SSOOO terrible. It literally makes them look like old faded lights and arent black at all... its like fog clear color. dont waste your money. I bought 3 cans and I may as well say them for a glossifier alternative on a custom color or something

Anyway...I have been searching threads and there are a ton of people using BLACK on the headlights and tailights with great success. I was looking at a tacoma with running lights on, brakes applied, blinkers and what not...looks just as good as stock STG. You only use 2 coats though. The first is very light coat, just enough to get the 2nd coat to stick and that 2nd coat isn't too thick itself either. You can mask reverse lights or the red section for cool look too. GL

That may be illegal. I dont know for sure but police usually wont let you have your lights that dark. But hey its easy to take off. So if you do it and get pulled over, just peel it off right in front of him and go on with your day.

Why do you want to compromise your safety by essentially blacking out your tail lights and making them harder to see from behind? I've never really got the "blacked out" look with covering your head/tail lights to "look cool". OP not bashing on you wanting to do it, and I'm all for performance/interior/exterior modding, but IMO I wouldn't mess with em'.
