    Im not 100% but ive seen rear lights that are black (tinted) and some that are light tinted like the gsi style ones.


    I tinted mine myself from this,



    To this,




    I phoned insurance yesterday an declared them and no differnce to premium.

    I did not want to go to dark just in case.

    Zully, Enkhanz in BD will do it for you, but charge you a bit for it tho, and i'm pretty sure Storm Motorsport on Leeds Road can arrange it too
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    I did 2 lights coats then masked off the reflective strip and did a further 2 coats on the rest of the light.

    This way the reflective strip is still visable but dosent look stupid !
