    I was really impressed with the Lamin-x film for my fog lights, so I decided to get some "charcoal" film from their website (a 4" x 24" sheet) to cover up my 3rd brake light, to make it "blend in" a little stealthier. I am not a huge fan of tinted tail lights, so i was curious as to how this was going to turn out. It was 17.99 and removable anyways.

    I really like it a lot.

    It looks great on my MGM. I will post a full back before and after pic when I get home. Really easy and cheap mod as well.

    Hmmmm good question. I live in CA, so nothing is legal :sadviolin:

    I am assuming that since it is a 3rd brake light, and with the brakes applied you cannot tell at all, then I should be fine. Nothing else on my car would cause me to get pulled over anyways.
