are you tails clear???

if they are, then you can smoke them, and get colored bulbs...

but if they are the stock tails... smoke em and use the normal bulbs...

i dont think u can.. i think the plastic is red like that.. otherwise there would be a DIY for "clearing" your amber tail lights with the 96-98 civics..

all i want to do is get rid of the color and try and make them a smoked gray color.. i think it would look cool cause my car is dark green. so what i want to do is get the color out and make um a lil grayish color to resemble smoke.

what you should do is buy those tails that have clear lenses all the way around, that were popular a few years back, you can find em on ebay for cheap, and smoke those, that would give you the look you want.

i used to get it from this local hobby shop where i got all my modelling and hobby supplies...... i think the owner passed away, though.... the shop isn't there anymore. try using one of those window tint kits that you guys have at the zone....... im sure you can just cut out the appropriate shape and stick the tint on there.......

all you gotta do is take your tail lights apart and dip the lenses in bleach for three days and that will get the color out! :thumbs up:
