Default BLACKED OUT:Tail Light's & Reverse Light's

So I had been debating on whether or not I should black out my tail light's and those nasty white reverse light's. That throw my car off just a lil since my car is BLACK

So I finally called up my friend who happens to work with paint and body. He told me to come by his job and he would do whatever I wanted and that it would be done in a booth!

So here are some before and after pix...



BEFORE...



AFTER...



DRIVER SIDE TAIL LIGHT...




PASSENGER SIDE TAIL LIGHT...




(WHITE LEFT) REVERSE LIGHT
...


(WHITE RIGHT) REVERSE LIGHT...


@ NIGHT WHILE CAR IS ON...


@ NIGHT WHEN CAR IS IN REVERSE...


@ NIGHT WHILE BRAKE IS APPLIED...

Can you show some daytime pics with light on and off please? I have been entertaining doing this exact thing on an exact twin to your monte.

Is there a reason that you didn't do the third brake light?

That looks great Arty(?) Very good looking car and they still look bright at night. I would love to see some daytime pics, I havent seen any blacked out ones like yours from 06-07.
Ryan, stop trying to show off haha.

Edit: I was wondering the same thing as trewyn15.

It just got sunny today and has been raining ALL WEEK LONG. So I haven't had time to get any good pix in the sun just in the ugly dark rain weather lol

Because I wasn't trying to MURDER OUT the tail light's I wanted some red to show thru. Plus it's faster that way then to just take them off. I didn't want to paint them inside either because like I said I wanted to black them out but not PITCH BLACK. PLUS I HAVE A LIFE TIME WARRANTY SO I CAN GO BACK ANYTIME I WANT TOO TO GET THEM RE DONE FOR ANY REASON'S.

LoL ya very true on that 1st statement. Not sure on the cost of regular customer it happened to be a friend of mine who works at a Chevy dealership in the paint department that's why I got such a great deal

Stock reverse lights. I'm only going to run HID's on the lows,highs and fogs because I am going to "smoke" out my headlights and don't wanna blind people with HID's and the inside of my headlight's are already scratched cuz the previous owner didn't CLOSE THE HEADLIGHT ALL THE WAY AND LET ALL THIS MOISTURE AND FOG TO GET INTO THE LIGHT AND I HAVE TO EITHER GET A NEW ONE OR JUST SMOKE THEM OUT. SO I'M JUST GOING TO SMOKE THEM OUT SINCE I'M IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING H.I.D'S AND COPS IN TEXAS LOVE TO PULL OVER H.I.D.'S THAT ARE TOO BRIGHT SO I'M THINKING THE SMOKED OUT HEADLIGHT'S MIGHT HELP PREVENT THAT.
