    Nightshade, Aftermarket or stock corners/lights ?

    Im desiding weather to put nightshade on my stock turn signal corners, go aftermarket or just leave em. Im also thinking about putting nightshade on my tail lights, 3rd brake light, and side markers. Im planning on getting halos down the road so im leaving stock headlights now and mybe do the whistler mod if i deside to nightshade all my lights. The problem i have with aftermarket ones is there kinda tackie and look alittle bit ricerish, the stock ones are yellow so it looks ugly when everything else is red, black or chrome, and with the nightshade im not sure if it will look good. My car is a 98 Z28 bright red with 20% tint all the way around as you can see in my avatar. What do you guys think ?

    It wouldn't look bad doing the Niteshades on your car....but since you have a Red car....I would say clear or leave them.

    If your car was Black however, I Def would say Niteshade all lenses! Did it to mine, and it is totally blacked out....but light still shines through just fine.

    You could hit up 1FastCamaross on his clears he has for sale!

    hmm cause its like those shade covers you buy but i think more light would shine through. Tell 7Camaro7 to join www.tnfbody.com its middle tennessee f-body and it has all the guys from around here that have meetings and go for cruises. I met a real good guy on there that helped me out a ton and saved me $800-$1000.

    haha alright then i dont think im going to do that lol ... cause we already have the most horriable drivers here in TN and i dont want to add another obstacle. Having these 320+ ponies under the hood has saved my butt quite a bit from drivers cutting me off, not paying attention and coming over into my lane etc. the list gos on and on

    You could get the covers and just take them off at night. They do look cool

    DONT AND I MEAN DONT NITESHADE YOUR HEADLIGHTS!! That is a very stupid Idea, and plus it will greatly reduce your vision at night when driving!! Since your headlights output a different kind of light ie: Lumens, it will worsen your ability to drive at night with your headlights on!
