ok, the GAMVC is title 40, but your going to want to draw your attention to chapter 8 part 2, . This is the tail light law.

(b) Every motor vehicle, trailer, semitrailer, and pole trailer manufactured after January 1, 1954, shall be equipped with two taillights which meet the specifications provided in this Code section.
(c) Every taillight upon every vehicle shall be located at a height of not more than 60 inches nor less than 20 inches, to be measured as set forth in subsection (b) of Code Section 40-8-21.
(d) Either a taillight or a separate light shall be so constructed and placed as to illuminate with a white light the rear registration plate and render it clearly legible from a distance of 50 feet to the rear. Any taillight or taillights, together with any separate light for illuminating the rear registration plate, shall be so wired as to be lighted whenever the headlights or auxiliary driving lights are lighted.
(e) All lenses on taillights shall be maintained in good repair and shall meet manufacturers' specifications.
Now, to me it looks like line (e) is whats going to get you in trouble. But if you were to replace the tail lights with something from a manufacturer other then ford where the lights are already blacked out you would be ok. Also I'm only assuming line (e) extends to light covers, where as the GA MVC has a specfic prohibitation against headlight covers.

(b) Every motorcycle and every motor driven cycle shall be equipped with at least one and not more than two headlights, which shall comply with the requirements and limitations of this article.
(c) Every headlight upon every motor vehicle, including every motorcycle and motor driven cycle, shall be located at a height measured from the center of the headlight of not more than 54 inches nor less than 24 inches, to be measured as set forth in subsection (b) of Code Section 40-8-21.
(d) The headlights required by this Code section shall be maintained in proper working condition and shall not be covered by any type of material, provided that the covering restriction shall not apply to any vehicle on which the original factory headlights were covered.
(e) It shall be unlawful to operate a motor vehicle unless such motor vehicle is equipped with aiming pads on each headlight.
Now, with both laws, the 'loop hole' I would use if I lived in GA would be installing a second set of headlight and tail lights, ones that meet the laws requirements but also are less noticeable on you car. Like the tail lights could be mounted to a license plate frame or something.
