Those actually look pretty clean, I'd love to see what they look like lit up. They'd look incredible with a set of matching trunk lights.

I planned on making my stock tails like that.Its easy just go to a decal/graphic shop.They usually carry transparent colors.Have them just over lay some transparent red over your stock tail just like in the pic.Save yourself some good $$$ and it will still be your high quality oem tail light not a replacement.

Its basically how people tint their healights yellow or blue.Its all just transparent film.

i personally would just get the Modelista taillights! Much better and OEM! Those look like a whole differ taillights from what they did with the LEDs.

Yeah keep with the OEM type. I bought the LED tail lights and like two weeks later one of the lights went bad and only half of the brake light worked. Then i had to stick my stock lights back on and tinted them instead. Altho i really liked the aftermarket ones :( but now im stuck with a set that i dont know how to fix .... if anyone knows someone that will fix LEDs?
aftermarket :(

Pretty cool, but pretty pricey. Hopefully the quality matches the high price tag

First out I believe this is a repost but that doesnt matter. Same exact pic was used too.

The lights are definately not as nice as oem.

just wetsanded the tails to prep, it was a kandy clear coat. Used a Sharpe fx300 paint gun. nothin too fancy. and yea i did clear it. i just taped off the edge where i wanted it clear(not painted) and after painting it, i cleared the whole tailight and not just the painted part
