    That looks great, it really mellows the clear lights out and makes it all blend in together. It seems they make a kit for the side markers to, but there web site is down, I wonder how much these kits cost.

    My initials are RRR, the two extras are my way of personalizing. Same reason for the multiple R's at the end of ROAR.

    Yah thats cool. I think you did a great job of making it look like it belonged. Worked on me as my brain was like wtf? I did notice the license plate so I knew there was a theme going on. Cool look!

    I had mine painted and I love the darkening of the taillights. Hard to tell (for Cops) too because I'm pretty sure the Charger has the brightest taillights known to man.

    I read a while back that our tails are the brightest out there. I tinted everything except the backup light (state law).

    Dumbest mod ever. And this is coming from a guy that used to do it on most cars he had.

    Until more and more members of our car club and surrounding areas clubs would show up without their car because it was in the shop. Seems they kept getting rear-ended after tinting their tails... even with a medium tint (I used to go extremely dark because I had black cars). Not only were they getting rear-ended, but they were being put at fault, screwing with their insurance. And I don;t mean one or two guys.. I mean a LOT of them.

    At night the brake lights showed up fine. Dimmer, but visible. But when the sun was out bright, you couldn't tell that their brake lights lit up at all. They would slow or come to a stop for something and BAM! Right in the ass. And of course the person that hit them would immediately tell the officer that they saw no brake lights... the cops would look and sure enough... tinted tails.

    I almost got hit for the same reason. Luckily the guy had really good brakes and was paying attention.

    I never tinted my tails again. Yeah, it looks damn good on most cars, but not worth the headache.

    I like it, but I want folks to see that I'm slowing down. Plus around here they're really cracking down on any lights that are tinted. Most places won't even let your vehicle pass inspection if they see the slightest bit of tint.
