Red/Clear tails

Has anybody seen Red/Clear tails that are almost all red? I really like the look of having red instead of amber. I'd like to buy a set but the only ones I have seen are "custom" made with red tint spray I think but they really don't match up well. Anyone know where to get them?

Yeah. Well, from what I have seen, it never seems to match up that well so I don't know if iI should do it. I just want something different or I am going to go for the black on Cashmere Beige theme.

what about the lights that are white instead of amber?

Those look good.


i know u can get spray that matches the red tail light color. Check your autoparts store. It should be an exact match. If not spray them all the same color?

i was told that it would cover the amber color. I guess the only way to find out is trying it. I know its a popuar mod for E30's, since the amber is on teh end..and all red ails on E30=hawt.

A good idea. I'm thinking about modding my tail lights. I've seen some Euro style tail lenses with red bottoms/clear tops. I'm not sure about them though. Maybe I'll go all red, or even a dark tint. Best photoshop it and see what it looks like first. I think you can get some good results with spray if you take your time with it.

I think I will ask my gf to photoshop it for me. I just figure why not try out the all red tails then if I mess up just tint it , heh.

Damn, I just drove down the street to OSH and they don't have it so it looks like I will be heading to my local hobby shop (RC Tech) tomorrow.

It depends on the color of the car too. I have a black e36 and I put smoke tail lights on and it looks great. The red part stays the same but the amber is replaced with clear and the entire thing has a smoke glaze to it. It really matches well. You can get the smoke lights from numerous places including ebay
