    I remember seeing that thread before thanks

    I'd be looking to tint them (smoked black) same as top as possible. Are tops (SRI rear clusters) tinted on the outside already then or are they a different colour plastic?

    I've not got the guts to pull out some tint paint on my lights

    They look fine with black reverse lights as thats what mine are, SRI rear lights with black reverse light to match the strip.
