Just wanting some opinions. This is just a quick mockup I came up with.

looks hot.

Will you have issues backing up with red lights and night bright white?

you really should. it sounds better than two V8s having sex with a blowoff valve while a v12 tapes the whole thing.

I don't think so. The reverse light is still white. It should shine through fine.

The incandescent bulb does not have a red coating, but the red tint will make for a red light.  I don't think it looks bad or good... I'm one of those that don't mind stock lights.

Yeah, I could go either way, I was just throwing the idea around.

I know some folks have "smoked" their lenses using a spray on style product. I was thinking if you wanted to go red you could have a couple vinyl circles cut or purchased to mask off the reverse lamps to retain their proper color. Just a couple pennies.

I think I'm going to do clear red vinyl.

if it becomes problematic you could instal some sort of reverse/rear facing fog set up below the bumper to help with reversing.

Doesn't look bad at all though.
