playing around with lite tint today. tinted too dark but just wanted to ask a question:
anyone played around with higher wattage globes to be more visable ? i know people have tried this with headlights but don't want anythin to melt. being intermittant lights (brake reverse & blinker) heat wouldn't be as much of an issue, just wondering how high to go.
anyone played round with this ?

installing led's into the stock globe holders ? thats not a bad idea.
are these lights legal as long as you can see the lights lit up during the day ?

pic of mine, i found buying pre made leds for the tail light was crap and i have not got around to making my own up yet, my tail lights are very lit with the tint, Hid's in the headlights i live in wa never had a prob with the cops been like that for some time have been pulled over few times and had a full car check, did u use night shades? white spirits and terps gets it off, and clear coate gives it an aweosme effect but is harder to get off.
