Tinted Tail Lights

Has anyone done the tint or the spray for the Tails lights? I was wondering if I can just buy the stuff somwhere and do it myself..

VHT Night Shades with a clear coat on over it is the DIY solution. Then polish the hell of it, but when I did it, it didnt come out very shiny.
The better option would be to have a paint shop mix some black paint and clear coat and have them do it.

Sure I did it like that, you can use VHT niteshade. If you want them looking real good take your time, prep work and wet sanding makes a big difference.

I wet sanded after the clear coat... you want to get rid of all the orange peel, drips, and any other imperfections. then after theyre all dull and smooth looking, I used an orbital buffer and buffed three times with rubbing compound, then three times with meguires plasti-x, then waxed them, and they came out shiney.
