I used Lamin-x red film and then cut out the white reverse lights for more of the new model OEM look. I followed the angled lines of the rear and cut the film at an angel. i also tinted the 3rd brake light.
what do you guys think over stock?

I dig it. ACtually would like to have my blacklines have the reverse strip in a matching red the way you cut yours.

Very nice work! Was it hard to get the film stretched over the lenses without wrinkling? I assume you did this with the tail lights off the car?

^Full redded out looks great as well. I'm so confused, there's so many different ways to go. I LOVE the look of the Blacklines, but I'm not sure if it's worth it for me to drop the $$ on them, when I think I can achieve the same satisfaction by either just tinting only the red on my pre-LCI's, or go the "redded out" path... They all look good so idkkkkkkkkkkk

Just a thought on full red out. You will lose the "white" backup lights, so folks will not have any warning that you are backing up until you start moving. Could be nasty in the wrong scenario.

I would love to see a shot with the lights on and then another shot of the car in reverse.

Its a light pink hue that is different than the brake lights, I see what you mean but I haven't had an issue with them in over two years.
