Smoked Tail lights

I was roaming through the auto parts store and up at the front VHT Nightshades caught my eye, i have been wanting to do this for a while so here is how i am doing it

I got
1 can VHT Nightshades 11.99
2 white trashbags bigger size
and took the lights all the way around off and placed all the ones being painted down on the trashbags
this saves time i think because you don't have to tape up your jeep all crazy and it isn't such a big mess

then i just open the can and start spraying from far away light coats until it's black
i'm down in the garage right now in the middle of it so i'll post pics when it's done and such.

Paint the insides rather than the outsides. They look better when they're finished. If it's too late for that, hit 'em with some clear to shine them up nicely. Don't go too dark or you loose too much functionality. Here are mine:
I just wanted to blend them with the paint better, not black them out...

So I did my tint on the outside, it's pretty dark but all the light comes through when the lights are on so I should be fine, but if not I can get new lights and go lighter on the tints
here's the back side
