Trying to imagine what it would look like further away and it might be OK. Maybe start the line from the immediate inside corner so less of the backup light is covered.

Might do a trial with plasti dip to see how it would look, And post a pic.I can just peel off after. I like the fact it changes the back of the car. But I do appreciate the response! @coby ill try moving the left band up a little bit so less of the light is covered.

^Agree. It would be obvious you used two pieces of film and slapped them on IMO

No harm in trying. Personnalizing your car is always fun. Some will like some dislike. The important thing is that you like.

Did not want to go for traditional covers on eBay. There ok but there is nothing unique about them.

Yea I know that's why I wanted to go with the partial tint, In the first pic. Cuz I still want to be seen when braking or turning! I have YouTubed the plastidip smoke but it looks gray. So no go on that. Hold on let me see if I can post a link.

^went way to dark but gives you an idea. Shows day and night. Surprised how they show at night. But they went with 3-5 coats. I'm doing 2 tops real light just to get the effect of the first pic in the post!

Well look at it this way lol you get the tinted led tail lights and save your self from a ass hole cop and a huge ticket that could.be more then 300$ lol id go.with the.tail lights other then a ticket that could mess up your drivers.record and get you points on it. Put alil more thought to it cause.remember it is a safety hazard so that means more money on the ticket and maybe a possible accident in the future if the person behind you doesn't see the tail lights and it will be on you cause the illegal tint on the tails lol;-)
