Uh Oh, Cops Dont Like My Mods

So I got pulled over Sat morning at like 3 am, and the cop tells me that Blue ground effects are illegal in Columbus and that they are also now illegal everywhere in Ohio, that blue and red are reserved for emergency vehicles.



Im going to have to look further into this one bc I have looked it up before... Also he said I was driving without my lights on, but really I had them on but they couldnt see me from behind because of my "painted tail lights".



And of course I must have taken out my insurance card when i got a ticket at the end of June, so I had no proof of insurance. BUT...

They let me go with a warning, told me to drive without my neons on and to lighten up my tail lights so they are brighter at night. But now Im stuck with what to do. I think I'm going to keep the underglow but just use it for show.

The tails are a diff story. Im not sure if I will like the tails only lightly nightshaded, What does everyone think for a laser blue balt? Also If anyone who has nightshaded tails that arent blacked out or real dark, please post pictures of them.

Subtle is a good way to go when modding a car.....then again, I have stripes and a muffler..

yes, you will stick out more from the crowd once you start modding

no need to buy new ones, take laquer thinner and scrub it off, and wipe it off before it dries, ive done my 3 or 4 times...i had the nightshaded eyelids on, i took those off...id them the same...it was a warning...weve all gotten them...it will scrub
right off with something like an S.O.S. pad...

Also I had gone up high street to worthington and back and I passed like ten cops and even accidentally chirped my tires and redlined the balt trying to get around a retarded taxi, right in front of a worthington police car. And he didnt even pull out and follow me, so i dont know what was with these cops, and they were driving a columbus swat van or something
