    Well today myself and 3 of my friends decided to tint our tails finally. None of us wanted them very dark, so one of my friends has a paint gun and stuff so he mixed some clear up and mixed in some black paint. Did a few coats of the clear to build it up for the right darkness. These pics were taken with my phone and was about 6 at night so there wasn't much light, so they look darker then they actually are. I'll get some day shots with a real camera tomorrow afternoon. These are 09 lights that I picked up a few months ago. Over the weekend I'll get them buffed out to remove the orange peel so they'll look shiny.

    No, my friend just used his spray gun and just did light coats until we got the darkness we wanted. Just have to be careful with how much black you put into the clear mix so it wont come out super dark.
