It's a tard thing to do. don't.

As pointed out too. it's still illegal. ADR says brake lights need to be visible for 200 meters in daylight.

illegal sure but why would you do them black, which looks s**t. i have done this to every car of mine and some of my mates cars and never had any problems. although i tint mine slightly just to make it look a little darker. the problem with night shades is that it stays matt after you spray it. i put a few coates of clear over the top to get it looking shiny (jus like they were before they were tinited) you can see the light out of them fine, during the day and at night. ill post up a pik of my ef, i did something a little different on this one. looks different.
