theres no law specifically against smoked taillights ... the law ... at least in california ... is that your lights have to be visible from 500 ft away .....

Set up your ride the way YOU want it... maybe you'll get pulled over a few times, but they'll eventually stop pulling you over as your a local. Thats what I do. My tint is darker than the legal amount and I don't get stopped anymore for it.

well thats true but my problem was the STATE TROOPERS that pulled me over i mean were im from almost everyone got less percent then 5% tint cuz were in the border from mexico and united stated and in mexico they dont tell u nothing like when i go cruising over there my whole front windshield has a 5% on it and thats why when i go to a place called mcallen its 1 hr away i always take of my tint becouse its the one u can take of and put back on

When i was looking to buy an ESV, at one of the dealer here in Toronto had a White 2002 ESV from New Jersey, the rear tail lights were blacked out. The wife and i took it out for a test spin, on our way back a unmarked cruiser pulled us over. We told him we are taking it for a test drive, he noticed the dealer plate on the back and said if we were to buy this truck the tail lights have to go, they were to dark and said they wouldn't be legal, i should have them changed by the dealer upon purchase. Well we didn't end up buy it any way.

yeah they have nothing BETTER to worry about I guess. The last time I got pulled over for my side tint, which is only 20% tint! I asked him if he had anything better to do and if he was just bored. He didn't like that very much, but dam I see cars that the lenses are smashed and all taped up, you don't see them getting pulled over!:want: Its always the people that take care of there cars or trucks and make them look different.:rant2:

I paid $60 for both smoked pitch black. Auto Body/Paint shops charge really cheap. But if you cant find anything out there check these other guys out.http://www.smokinlights.net/

someone was talking about tinting, and another was talking about a body shop/paint shop doing it. Whats the best way to to do it? And will any window tinter be able to do this? I want it done.

the best to do it is film its shinier and it lasts longer ..... the spray paint gets dull and it doesnt last long .... and the way body shops do it is too dark .. its hard to see the lights at night even

The body shop does it as dark/light as you want. The 1st time I went in it was to light so I got it done again pitch black the second time. I tried doing the film but no luck.If you want the film check this palce out

That site doesnt have any for cadillac.

And I didn't know it just went on the outside, I thought was the inside. Any sites sell the pre cuts for the Lade?

You have to order a sheet of film and cut it yourself. I did but the sheet I bought was 12"X12" and wasnít big enough for both taillights. I would suggest you buy 2 -24"X12" if you want to do it yourself. I found it quite difficult. Itís up to you.

..... i got mine from and installed by sticker city ..... its good because theyre very dark but when you brake people cant tell the diff .... the reason they dont sell precuts for escalade is because the lines on the escalade taillights make it very hard ..... you could install by yourself .... it should be that hard from what ive heard
