I bought some German-made clear tail lights that came with white turn light bulbs. I know a lot of ppl with clears just paint their yellow turn signal bulbs silver so it doesn't show through. Now, can I install my lights with white bulbs - are they legal in FLorida?

And while we're on the subject of legal stuff - is there any DMV-issued (or other agency - like FCC for communication stuff) rule book on what's legal on your car?

try a search on google about whats legal and what isnt, you could go down to the dmv and ask them for a book on all of your state's laws. also im fairly sure that your going to have to have a orange turn signal
