I was a little unsure of how they would look but now that they are finished they are awesome. I am wanting to do the upper rear breaklight also. I'm just afraid of messing up the wiper fluid sprayer that's apart of it when I have to take it off. If anyone has any advice for that part please let me know.

I have been wanting to do this my self.
Ever since I saw this commander in the Cardomain thread, I have been thinking about doing it on my XK too. But this guy's tint looks so much darker, which I would want on my Black XK (as long as the light still goes through).


Either way, welcome to the forum! Nice looking rig, enick :werd:

Edit: It looks like this Commander tinted the top brakelight, so I don't know if that helps you

In WA your light have to be visible from 300 ft. in the day and 1000 ft. at night. Honestly tho I'm sure there are many other things they would rather pull people over for unless the cop is a complete ****.

They are illegal in most states, the vehicle manufacture is required to have a certain percent of reflectable lense to the rear, AZ law simply states it is a violation to change the tail lamps or cover them with any material.

They would fine you big for that here in the "great" garden state. You cannot even have stone guards on your lights because it is an obstruction. The only vehicle you could get away with that is on a undercover cop car. They have smoked headlights and tail lights and they are the only vehicle that has tinted front side windows and even the windshields are tinted. So much for "undercover" because they stick out like sore thumbs.

First of all, I'm a GIRL.
When I said "this guy's tint looks so much darker" I was referring to the cardomain XK, not yours. Plus, youre a newb! How are we to know your gender after one post :rofl:

Without going outside and looking at it and if I remember correctly, I think the brake light has two phillips screws you remove and you can remove the wiper hose and unclip the light. Should be easier than the taillights (IMO).. but dont quote me on it

Any other future upgrades planned?

Thanks. About future mods, YES! many...window tinting, rims (I know people will be like 'why on an off road vehicle?'), different grill, nightshading the signal lights, leds for most all interior lights. My wonderful husband has all the ideas and executes them. I would like to go for the "murdered look". Hmmm, better sound system than I have currently. Anything that can make it more appealing to the eye.

Two screws and it comes right out:


I also was stopped for having tinted covers on the front and back lights on my Mustang convertable and had to remove them to avoid the ticket in Vermont.

This could really happen? Never heard of it.
Nah, I really doubt it. But they are some hardass dudes when it comes to that stuff. Tailight covers, headlight covers, license plate covers, it doesn't matter if they are clear or tinted or what. You better not let a trooper see them. They also really enforce the front license plate and they hate any window tinting. Absolutely no tinting on windshield and very little on side glass, like 35% I believe.
