I need help please...I just tinted my taillights with the VHT Niteshades paint and it came out okay. I would like to replace the stock bulbs with super bright LED bulbs mainly to keep the police off of me. I believe the current bulbs are:
921 - back up lights
3156 - tail/brake lights

Question is...there are several color choices. They (superbrightleds.com) recommend to choose the color that matches the lens, which was red, now I painted them smoke/black. Which color should I choose: red, cool white or natural white?

installed LEDs...but

That looks great...I installed my red LEDs and they shined through great however, the turn signals did not work. I am wondering if I bought the wrong ones or is there a mod I need to do? Here are the ones I bought at SuperBrightLEDs.com:
2 | 3157-x18-T: 18HP-LED 16mm Wedge Base 3157 Tower Bulb| |
3157-R18-T: 3157 Red
