Smile 4GLeafs Eclipse follow up!

Took some proper pictures of my Eclipse today to celebrate the gorgeous weather we had in Ottawa. Attached are 2 pictures from the batch. Excited to get more stuff done when the weather picks up. I am considering removing the eclipse badge and tinting the two red markers on the bottom of the bumper to start.

Remember that those markers are what help prevent people rear ending you when parked on the roadside. So be sparing with the tint level, if any at all.

I had assumed they were part of the brake light setup. Now I'm assuming they're part of my 4-ways or just regular turn signal setup?

They are just reflectors. They have no power source if I am not mistaken so "tinting" them would make them basically obsolete. They are for situations when you may not have power but you would still like someone to see your car in low light environments. My recommendation, don't tint those.

They are just reflectors. I thought you knew. There's nothing illegal about tinting them that I can find in the Highway Traffic Act, but it's a safety thing, and I don't suggest for yourself or other people on the road that you disable their function

If you look on pretty much any bodykit there are not any reflectors on the bumpers. On my car all I have is the all-way reflectors that come built in the headlights and taillights. And I second James's statement. I cant find anywhere stating that its illegal to tint the reflectors. Out of anything I would get a peal and stick film that way if the cop wants to bitch about it in front of you, you can ask if you may remove the film right there,right now. My 2 cents
