    tinted front indicators, legal or not?

    I have been playing with the idea of tinted front indicators, I wanted to tint them black origonaly, but the tint spray i got was pretty naff, and just ended up running into the middle of the lense (done the inside), anyway, I got on with painting something else with blue spray paint, and decided to experiment with my already ruined indicators, so I sprayed one blue, Is this Illegal or not, even though it still shows orange through it when the indicator is on




    (the tape is just holding the lense on, since its not glued)
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!

    Nice LEGAL mod.

    The lense can be any colour as long as it flashes Orange.

    Which it does.

    As others have said. As long as the light shines through in the right colour then it's legal

    id say you'll be fine with them because they shine orange. btw i did my rear lights with tint spray and they ran first time round, you have to do lots of really light coats, takes time but worth it in the end
