Yeah I know this is a dumb question. My tail lights are tinted but not to the point where they're completely black so they're still somewhat visible during the day and at night they're fine.

I was going to get a clear front grill to match my clear side turn signals but decided that on a black car, I'm probably better off tinting those to the point where they're black (I'd switch back to amber side turn signals). I've seen a few pics, looks good althought if they're "nite-shaded" to the point where they're pretty much black, are they still visible??

mine grill turns are tinted so that they almost disapear into the grill, but they are plenty visable when they blink. i also cut the wire for the running lights, so that they only come on with the blinker, not with the headlights.

So if I read this right, you cut the wire that keeps the turns on and now they blink only when the signal is indicating ?

If so, which wire is the lucky victim :)

But cut it in a way that you can reconnect it easily down the road if you have to.

I had mine blacked out to match the grill but then I noticed that ppl couldnt tell that I was turning or trying to turn and I almost got in a few accidents. I then cleared them off and nite shaded them to a point where u can see it blink just fine. I also had my side markers blacked out and got a ticket.....cop was an ass and gave me a non fix it ticket...$124. So now im back to orange on my sides lol. for now.
