DAMN that looks like ass dude. you really screwed the pooch on this one. I'm bored.

Looks alright to me. I'm not one for tinting lights, but it doesn't look bad. so that's better results than many people get.

EDIT: actually the more I look at it, the more I like it. aww crap.

It must be something in the pain medication. I painted the bezels in April after my shoulder surgery. I tinted my marker lights last summer and just had my front door windows tinted to match the hard top tint.

Looks good Sam! I bought tinted markers from ebay, didn't want to try to tint them enough to cover the amber and make them too dark. Have you done the tails yet? I did mine very lightly with nightshades to blend them with my Sienna paint. They aren't dark, just not bright red anymore. Now they don't clash... I hate clashing stuff, unless it's giraffe seatcovers

I dislocated my shoulded skiing a couple months ago. That said, I had to follow suit with all of you and paint my bezels too. Already have 2 coats of primer on them and about ready to hit them with the black.....

Looks great! That's what I want to do on my Green TJ.
You get that effect by putting the tint on the inside, right?

Why did Jeep put Chrome on it anyway?

It will look better and last longer if you do the insides of the lenses.
