    I'm putting black headlights and corner lenses in my 02 Tacoma. How could I black out the turning lenses that are below them?

    I did my headlights, tail lights, and blinker lights myself at a paint shop. You could prob take them to a shop and get them sprayed for a few bucks. See what you think about mine.

    Just make sure its legal in your state, as in Utah, any tinting any lenses fails inspection. Dont want you to do all that work only to have to buy new lenses.

    Thanks! I Just sprayed a few coats of automotive paint and then clear coated it. But you gotta have a little skill with a spray gun.
