Default Need some opinions

Need some advice about what I should do with my tail lights. Right now I have clear tails (euro, rice blah blah whatever you want to call em) and I dont really like them anymore. I was thinking about blacking them out with tail light tint or covers. I still have my stock ones too, I changed them out because I wanted something different than the everyday stangs I see around me. So should I tint the clear tails or get covers? I like the white and black combo.
This is what she looks like now:

Seems to be the cheapest I can find for the tint. Cant I just buy window tint and cut the pieces to fit?

Yea I would re-install your stock ones and tint them if you can. The " rice " one's you had on your car did not look good to me because the color of your stang. I would go with a tint color or keep them stock. Im not sure if they are different, but the ones that come on the cobra's look nice too.

You should re install the stock tails and throw those ones in the fireplace. If you dont have a fireplace a can of gas and some matches will do.

Ok I have an idea. Don't get covers, don't get tint. Do it the right way and have them painted. This is the guy who did mine. You not only get new tail lights, so now you have your original, those butt ugly rice patties, and a custom set of painted ones. Primo, can't lose. Just an opinion.

If that's the case, Get the vinyl tint from our sponser, Autobadges. His are more expensive, but a better product for sure.

Just another option. You have a nice ride, don't go too cheap on something that everyone you pass is going to see. If none of these options are viable, just put your stock ones back on. Anything is better than those rice-a-ronis.

I would say try tinting the ricer lights with window tint. You already own them so its worth a shot. I personally like the stock lights when they have been tinted. Don't use tail light covers. They are look horrible. A good tint job looks crisp.
