I don't question your niceness, and I applaud your effort. You clearly put a lot of time into this, and I'm not trying to insult your taste in any way. The beauty of the internet is that we don't all have to agree. I think the "my X subaru" badges look tacky, horribly out of place, and utterly ridiculous. That says NOTHING about the time you put into modifying them, or anything even remotely suggesting that anyone putting these on their car are foolish. If you want a compliment, you painted them nicely and they look better in black than they do in silver. Good walkthrough, also.
As for taillight tint, I won't yield. While the looks are questionable, there is no question that they reduce safety. I will now say that anyone willing to tint their taillights is foolish. And I'm not insulting your "taste" when I say that.
