They make spray can tint paint. It works pretty well, but I'm not sure how it would hold up to the heat that taillight bulbs make. Also, I'm sure it's highly illegal. But, both Pactra and Tamiya make it. You can get it at your local hobby shop. It's paint that's made for painting bodies for radio control cars.

There has to be someone making real smoked tails for the sedan somewhere. I have yet to find them but when I do, I'll post it. I just don't want "spray tint" on them. You can tell the differece as with those who have posted pics here in the past threads. Someone has to make actual smoked lenses soon. They'll make a mint, especially since all that's out there is those damn Rice Altezza's. Bring us real smoked lenses...We Beg of You!

I can't find them anywhere. I have another friend who is looking for something similar. I tried searching on Ebay for them, which is usually where I find anything I can't find anywhere else, and no luck.

The spray tint most people use is called Night Shades. I got a can from Summit Racing but have yet to use it.
