I have seen a few cars on the net lately with dark tail lights. One EB that had them made me want them bad!!

To do this mod is it just a layer of window tint directly onto the plastic casing of the lights? And how would I go about doing this myself?

Ok so where could I get this spray? Any auto shop that stocks car paint?

I was thinking about that, I am planning on getting LED brakelights and indicators which are much brighter than stock halogen's.

What is the resistor mod? A step up of power?

I wasn't planning on making them black at all, just enough for them to look a little mean.

I'm 100% sure of getting this mod, going out to Menai to get some of the paint today as I've already seen an EB with tinted lights and I really liked it.

I can't really see highlights working for the lights as all the lights are kind of dark as they are, no white bits for reversing. They are in the centre of the rear end.

Thanks for the replies.
