Black tail lights

Has anyone used VHT Nite Shades or similar. and got some photos??

>>VHT Nite Shades (SP999) is a transparent black tail light lens coating for creating a custom European styling. When applied to tail lights, fog lights or turn indicators, VHT Nite Shades appears black until they are lit, then the natural red colour appears. Recommended for off road use. Warning: Once applied to plastic lens, SP999 is not able to be satisfactorily removed. Recommended for off-road use.<<

Is this stuff legal??

the stuff is illegal, and they do dim the light emitted from the tail lights. also if not applied evenly, as soon as they are lit up, will show runs and any imperfection

I used this stuff on my XD Fairmont Ghia around 5 years ago. It turned out sensational. I was really impressed with it. I thought applying ti was very simple if you just applied light coats at a time and waited to dry. I ended up doing my Tail lighs and front indicators. I didnt use to much it was just a happy medium and everything was easy to see still.

It is illegal, even though LTD's had factory tinted tail lights.

Id's suggest either one clear coat on the inside or 2 or more on the outside.

Then either it willnot look that illegal or if you get hassled, you can wash it off.

Hmm... Does anyone know *why* it is illegal ?
It seems to me as long as your reflectors still work, and your lights are above the minimum brightness, there should be no problem. Given you can go for no-colour ( a-la mazda 6, ef indicators etc ), darker colours should be okay (as per above conditions).
