Ok I went to the car show lastnight and met 4 other guys wth cobalts. One of the guys had nightshade on there rear lights. He said he only did like 2 coats but anyways told me not to do it to mine bc he has been pulled over like crazy since then. He said the cops has to c the red light up bright. So my idea is if I get a chevy symbol cut out and put it on the rear breaklights and black it out 100%, then remove the symbol and do 1 coat after that lol I think it would sweet when the lights r lit up and the po9s wouldn't b able to pull me over.... what do u guys think? Has any1 ever done it?

They could still pull you over if they wanted...the lights will be darker than factory. Doesn't mean you will or will not get pulled over.

I personally don't like the idea...I like things to look clean...debadged, not too many different things going on at once...so for me Niteshades should be used for the entire thing.

Ya thats what i did to mine kinda i went a little darker over the chevy sign though. ok so the first time use the emblem it messes it up, so i smeared it and ordered a new light the other one turned out fine because i used tape and then got my other one in the mail and it looked good to. I like it mine is darker though but from the sides you can really see it. Alot of people will ride me close then tell me later how cool it is. Alot of people think i bought it and it was Pricey but then they find out and they want you to do it for them. lol but ya its chillin you should do it. I have only had one ticket for it but it was because i was speeding switching lanes but the highway patrol let me off with it as a non moving violation. But your taillight is supost to be red. Reflector. Thats why white are ok they are a reflector. But ya sorry for rambling. But ya i stole the idea from a guy i used to work with at culvers his car is the reason i got a cobalt its murdered out has 19 in rims coli overs dubble 5% all around thing is amazing. Ya he gets alot of tickets

This guy did that exact idea you had. With the chevy symbol to the tail lights. Persnally i didnt like it. The tailights arnt perfectly flat, they have little designs and shit on them, it just didnt look good. But even if you did that they can still pull you over. ANY modification to a tailight is illegal. So if you nightshaded a small circle the sie of a quarter onto your taillight techniclly you could get a ticket for it. (though i doubt that would ever ever happen) you could.

You should also ask yourself what are your future plans with the exterior color of your car? Are you going to be getting windows tinted new rims and what not, things that would match blacking out your tails? This will help you figure out what you want to do
