tinted the tails with reverse cutout

i know not a lot of people are a fan of tinting the tail lights. i however think it gives a nice aggressive appearance. used the lamin-x from over at **********s and cut out the reverse with a xacto knife. here is the results. please dont mind the dirty car and iphone camera



camera fun

Has anyone thought about doing red-outs on their LCI tail lights (tint the signal part so the whole tail light is red)? I can't find any pics so I'm assuming no one has ever done that yet?

It's been done, mostly using VHL paints
To be honest, from what I've seen, mixed results, and takes even longer than black to get right

I'm quite the fan of these: http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com.au/viewitem?itemId=160845774412&index=1&nav=SEARCH&ni d=02056439897

As far as the black goes, but they do also do a red aftermarket tail light

sry to bring this back from the dead, but have you ever found that yet? I've been wondering what it would look like to have completely red tail lights on a 1er.
