Does the light still shine through the material? If not, isnt it illegal not to have a front signal??

I have mine wrapped in black. I was told that as long as you dont shave down the DOT Approval there legal being that they serve no purpose. Our turn signals are in the front, the side lamps are just extra driving lights to the best of my knowledge.

I'll definitely have to look into that. I thought that the side yelow lights were turn signals. I have the electric blue car, it would be cool if i could get vinyl to exactly match them. At least until we can get some clear lenses.

Looks like a carbon fiber material....On an unrelated note, anyone know where I can get a few yards (about 5) of the blue and black material that is over the seats?

it is carbon fiber, and i am gonna shave down the dot writing, who needs it anyways haha. from what i have been told the light will still shine through the carbon vinal so i am gonna give it a shot... i cant really keep secrets :D

o well i will let you guys know how it goes, i am not worried about illegal most cops are not gonna write you up for shaving the dot writing off the corner light as long as the light still works. and i am thinking that i will still have an amber color to it because it will still be going though the amber to get out. we will see if i get a ticket than i will prob be a fix it and i will just take the vinal off

I thought you had ordered some of that VHT Niteshades spray. It'll black them out but when they are lit, it shines through.

I want to do this to my car but I would like an extra set of tailights and sidemarkers first in case I get a ticket and for state inspection.

I'd change them out to get it inspected or to take a pic of my car back to original to show the judge in case I ever get a ticket for it.

how the hell is any cop going to give you a ticket for putting vinyl over your parking lights. The only time those ever light up is when you put on the ebrake(manual) or put it in park(automatic)

Ours come on as apart of our day-time running lamps. The two interior amber lights come on along with the two corner amber lamps. I know it seems dumb, but that's the way the designed the car.

oh why did they do that with the redline i have an ion 2 coupe and mine only come on when i put on the parking brake. Which kind of pisses me off cause i thought they were the directionals and that was one of the reasons i liked it. on another note do you think they could be made into directionals(just pull them both out and switch them)
