I have two voices.

But to help you out, I would imagine the VHT nightshades paint would work.

Taylor if you do them any darker they won't put out much or any light. Does that matter? If not you could do them your self but its always hard to make sure they are not too dark.

Smoked out headlights look weird and reduce the light output. Safety over looks any day. But thats like saying to a woman "comfort over fashion". Goes in one ear and out the other.

I think your headlights looks great with just the BHLM. Plus if you get in a wreck with smoked headlights or blacked taillights thats just more liability thats put on you.

I'm not going to do anything more to the headlights. i'm talking about my fog lights...i want to take off the lamin-x covers and spray tint them, but don't know if i should risk doing it myself or having someone else do it

If you do it yourself just to slow light coats and build you're way up in darkness. Its should be pretty easy but you'll want to spend the time to do them slow so you don't get them too dark right away and not be able to go back lighter.

I can talk to my friend that did my tails on my old truck. him and his dad paint cars so they know what they are doing. I have to see if they still do lights though.

Hahaha. Well I feel like an idiot. Sorry. I tinted m fogs yellow with paint made to simulate stained glass. Worked out great. Got it at Michaels arts and craft store. Really easy to do. Check out my build thread to see how they came out. I think page 3. I'm not sure if they make a dark color to smoke them out though.

I'm sure someone will find something bad to say about it, but personally I am very happy with the way mine turned out.
