Stock Tail Lights

I'm looking for a set of brake lights, third, and side markers for my coupe. mine are tinted and wont pass inspection. the local junkyard wants $25 a piece... that comes to $175 for all seven, i could get new ones for that price. I have thirty days to fix

Just sand em down with a palm sander and put on a layer of clear coat.
could always tint em back after if you really wanted. Probably even cheaper than buying a 2nd set.

Did it cloud at all? I tried that originally on mine as well and had them cloud up really badly with a white film which lead me to have to sand them. I had them clear coated too, maybe that could be why.

Thanks for the help people. I found a set for 125 and it comes with all seven pieces. I will be selling these as soon as i get the inspection sticker and get the tinted ones back on.
