I agree 1,000,000,000% !!!
Dudes - get covers. Or make some.
WHY go out of your way to make it hard to see your car at night?
WHY not just close your eyes and drive????
I'll direct it to EVERYONE who does this stupid, idiotic crap on street cars.
(Trailer queens and show only cars? Darken to your heart's content. If it hits the street - I really DO hope the police pull your plates and your license for driving such a stupidly moronic piece of crap on the road.)
Now, that wasn't really called for, was it? Just because you
don't like it/think it's unsafe, whatever, don't flame others for doing it. I don't agree with doing it with the headlights, as the OP also said, but as long as you don't completely blacken out your tail lights, what the F is the problem? You can see them just fine at night, and just fine during the day, as long as they are done right. Having a non-smoked third brake light helps as well
It's not like everyone who does it is purposely making their car hard to see at night, read all the posts, they are looking for brighter lights as well, or adding LED strips, looking for better ways to brighten the lights up after doing this. I never once got pulled over for smoking my tail lights, why? Well, maybe BECAUSE THEY COULD BE SEEN AND WERE PERFECTLY SAFE!
This was not a "post your dumb opinions about using Niteshades on your car" thread, it was made by the OP to show others how to do it right, let's leave it that way.
