Yeah, but at what price? My mod cost all of about $3.00 and maybe an hour of my time.

painted..if the sun hits them the right way you can tell they are painted but most wouldn't notice. blitz928
The way to fix that is shoot a coat of clear over the entire lens. Worked for me.

One issue you will encounter with this mod is that your back-up lights become totally useless. Even with my relatively light tinting, the effect is significant.

Re: back up lights; You can buy higher wattage bulbs to fit the socket, and as long as you don't leave them on very long, won't risk melting the socket or lens. 20, 30, even 50 watt bulbs are available to fit the socket, if you have to go that far. I had them (50's) on my Bronco for backing up a dark 100' driveway. NICE near-headlight like illumination in the back with white lenses, so even with red you should still have good lighting. You might have to up the amperage on your fuses, though.

I'm wondering, if you could replace the bumperettes with some really nice, flat LED back-up lights. Then you could darken the top without worry...

Nicole--

This sounds like something that might be added to a plate frame, so no irreversible damage is done to the car.

I Photoshopped the effect and removed all yellow from the blinkers. I think the grey blinkers look absolutely amazing, especially on a grey 928, and they completely change the rear for better.

Actually the car looks 10 years newer with them.

Before:



Photoshopped (after):

I tend to try not to give an officer an excuse to pull me over in the unlikely event that I had two glasses of wine with dinner.....or the friendly bartenderess overpoured. Then they find the loaded .500 S+W, two pounds of coke and the headless dead body in the boot..... or something like that

LOL.

But if the blinker glass was actually grey and you used orange bulbs, then wouldn't it be 100% legal...? I mean that's how many cars' blinkers are OEM, at least here in Europe.

Looks better.
More modern and a bit more aggressive.
Nice.

Doing track tech inspection at a POC event a couple Boxsters had blacked out the brake lights one with spray tint the other with translucent film. I suggested that they remove the section at least over the brake lights......before they ran
