    What do you think about www.wetworksgarage.com work? Is it me or on thier site when they mention/show smoked taillights them seemed blacked out instead of smoked??
    I saw jonstintedtails but that guy seems a bit fishy with no address, price list, or telephone #.

    Any one got some pics of it done on a 93 STS or simular body style? Please post if you do. I hate the way those lights look for that year. THey should have left them alone. They look better on the Eldo's.

    Naw i don't think to many people do this to thier caddys. And if they do they must be embaressed to show it or something.

    What is the average cost to have this done?

    You send them your tails?


    I would be really interested in doing this to my black DTS, i think it would really look good. And if I could do it to those ugly big ass front turn markers it would really change the look of the car for the better. More black the better!

    TO answer questions, you do send them your tails (The two place i recommend are wet works garage and jonstintedtails.com) they usually have a 3-4 day turn around time and then also the shipping time. Probably ideal for when your out of town so the car is not down.
