    LED indicator bulbs

    Hi just recently tinted my rear lights red but now as the indicator strip is now red my flash is also red not amber, and even with a standard orange bulb still red

    so my question is; a LED orange bulb much more brighter and would it go through the red tint?

    Yea, it's a red tint, so it filters all other light apart from red. Just cut the tint over the indicator. If you are neat, it will look OK.
    Black tints work because they absorb all light frequencies at the same level, so the final colour is generally the same, but darker, so putting brighter bulbs in helps in that case.

    Sorry I can't think of anything better
