Could it be this Tim?
I guess it could be. I was thinking they were separate lights to swap to. Taillight tint does not pass inspection in TX. If I had a second set of dark taillights that could be swapped easily, I might be game for the mod

Taillights are sprayed with tinted clear. I talked my painter buddy into doing them for me. After doing mine he said they where the hardest ones he has down because of all the nooks and crannies. So when it came to making the upgrade from the 350 to the 500 I was swapping them in the parking lot at the dealer while the paperwork was being finished.

I got pulled over by a state trooper who thought my tails were tinted, & he knew differently as soon as I put my blinker on to move to the shoulder..

I hate that crap, can't they find something better to do. I got pulled over for exhaust on my SVT Focus years ago. The guy realized it was Ford's exhaust, so he went around the car checking everything, tint percentage (hung a meter on the window), headlights, tail lights, and finally saw the tint strip on the front window was below the AS1 line (I had no idea what that line was, I just had it tinted to the mirror). So he was able to write me a ticket for that. I've always been respectful when pulled over and I was to him, but inside I wanted to tear him to pieces.
