If they're not illegal nationwide, they should be.

If you get rear ended with smoked tails, be prepared to take the blame.
Definitely not DOT approved.

Ya not worth it really.

Here in Missouri those black deals that go over the headlight are illegal. Only way you can night shade your tail lights but not go to dark and it is "fine"

If you go dark on the night shade you should consider the L1224R bulb swap

2 VERY LIGHT coats is plenty. OR...if you wanna play with it some, find the lightest shade of window tint from like walmart and apply it to the tails. completely and totally reversable too.

like $10 a roll. or any auto parts store...the do-it-yourself window tint works great on tailights. Lay it over the lense, Use a hairdryer to stretch it to conform with curves of the lenses. trim to fit. done.
