Another way is to mix a little bit of black acrylic tinter with some acrylic clear.Make sure you give the lights a very light rub with a light grade scouring pad{you can steal the old one from the kitchen}so the paint will stick.The best thing with mixing your own is you can always add some pearl powder to give a tinted effect that will reflect the pearl when the sun reflects of it.

two pics of how my lights came up when i did them many moons ago! As said by others u gotta watch out u don't get hit or else u will be in the s**t! Daylight and tinted taillights will be a enemy of each other cause that is the time that it will be hardest to see!

Do most people just spray the outside of the tail lights or do they pull it apart and spary from the inside.

Can someone please tell me how to take the taillights apart?

Thanks heaps
