Tinted Fog lights...pics?

Hey there. Im looking to see how people have tinted their foglights. Im looking to tint mine a darker color but not sure the best way. I dont really want to use the lamenx stuff because I live in Maine and fear they will not stay on in the harsh winter months. Pics and ideas would be great! Thanks!

I've used rust-oleum a lot on tail lights and stuff for some friends. Works really well. You can pretty much do it as dark or as light as you want it too

I personally prefer using film
I got a lot left over if you'd wanna buy some off me
Or if you wanted you could even send me your fogs an I could tint them for
You with the film

Screw films and tints... they only reduce your light output. Either get a smoked chrome set of fogs off Fleabay or go this route:


They don't get much darker than that and they have much better light output vs. stock.

How do you use the nightshade? Apply then sand, then apply again?

I don't think you need to sand between coats. You put on as many or as few coats as you want, depending on how dark you want them tinted. Maybe a wet sand at the end for a polished finish before clear coating at most. Wet sanding could give them an uneven tint though unless you do it perfectly across the surface.
