Monaro Black/Clear Tail Lights

Hello GTOers!

Do any of you have these tail lights? If so can you please post a picture of your car with them installed? I can't seem to find a picture of them on a car anywhere!

Thanks!

First 3 are how they come. Last 2 are after I put a "light smoke" tint on them. I say then need tint on them and then brighter bulbs. The bulbs that come with them are too dim.

Perfect, thank you! Those actually look great! Did you use "light smoke" from headlight armor?

Yeah it's the light smoke from headlight armor. Not the greatest stuff and I'm looking at other light smoke tint options. It has a lot of orange peel to it and the edges collect dirt. If you tint these you need to sand and buff off the raised lettering that is molded into the lens.

Mine are not totally blacked on ones, I have had them for years, fitment was perfect. I put in stealth bulbs to eliminate the yellow bulbs.
Still trying to find new 06 tail lights though.

Yeah, I don't think that's possible anymore. They were told by HSV that they were not going to make any more of them. I just got super duper lucky that someone was selling a mint slightly used pair a while back.

You could ask JHP to send you close up photos of the best pair they have and see if they are acceptable. But for me, at that price, they have to be flawless and the set I got from them was far from flawless.

And I just checked, they even have raised the price on them again!

Yup, available and higher priced. That said, new 06 tails are $600 a set, so it is what it is.

Did the sanding of the raised lettering impair the clarity of the lens in that location? I just received my tail lights and headlight armor in the mail.
