I'm thinking of tinting the big red reflector in between my two tail lights while leaving my tail lights normal. Do you think it would look nice? And is it legal to tint the reflector? I live in NY and I think it is illegal to tint the tail lights, but I'm not sure about the reflector.

I used Lamin-X and just did the red on the lower part of the center tail. It looked darker or lighter depending on the light.

Will, yours looked good but it was hardly tinted. XD

If you go light, then maybe so long as you run with the fogs on or something so the rears stay on. Otherwise I think it might look a little bit weird depending on how dark you go.

I was gonna say the same thing about Will's car. it's hardly even tinted haha. Looks pretty good like that though..but if it was darker it would look odd.

I understand, haha. :) I wanted mine to be subtle. Most of the mods on that car were.

But that reflector doesn't even produce light and there are reflector strips in the actual tail lights. It almost doesn't make sense for it to be illegal.
