I am going to tint my sidemarkers. My car is pitch black and I think it would make it look 10 times better. My question is, Should I tint my SVT front grill lights as well?[burnout]

i would say tint them both or if you are going to get some projectors dont mess with the grille so you can sell it.

But buy a can of niteshade and give the markers 3 coats and then give em a couple coats of clear and they will look great. But for warning the light from them will be red after tinting them. I have had no problems from them.

Tint just the sides. I prefer the orange in the front, and it keeps it legal.

Once you tint them they blink red.

i didnt use nightshade or tint, but actual clearcoat/balck paint mix (done at a paint shop)

im the red one. The ambers are still very visible even in the daylight. I unplugged mine though because of the machs.

i know mine is a different grille, but its the general idea:
