Does anyone have or know where to get smoked or darkend tail light lenses? I have seen some on Vettes. I so want a pair and third brakelight for my balck SSR. I think with tinted windows it would look good.

Those are vinyl stickers that go on the outside of the lens, I bought smoked black spray paint from the local Hobby shop and removed the lens's and sprayed the paint into the hole to color the lens, it took a little while because I have to roll and rotate the lens to get the liquid paint to cover the lens evenly! After a couple of applications it worked nicely! Now it looks darker and way cool on my Black SSR!

smoked lights may look cool but just remember when you get rear ended because the brake lights are to dim due to the smoke covering you only have yourself to blame.

Here the State troopers would make you remove the blue dots on the spot or have it towed. Statutes state that "no motor vehicle shall have blue lighting other than emergency/police vehicles."

Been here, done this.

If those are Ghostriders tails in the picture above, those are nice. I was looking for something darker. I have seen some Vettes and some Hummers with even darker lenses. I would do my third brakelight too. I would really like to do the three tail lights, and all four side marker lights too. With the side markers I think I would like to leave the bowtie bright. Ghostrider, do you have the product name that you used? Is it possible to put more coats on to make it darker? Did you put the coats on the inside, or the outside?

Yes, you can add more by just spraying layers of this semi clear black spray paint, it's sold at all the hobby shops! When you hit your brake lites it shines as well as any brake lite or when the lites are on. The tint works when the lites are off. When you remove your tailight unit from the inside under the bed (with 2 nuts, just turn the light fixture and it will "pop" out) and spray into the light bulb hole rotating the fixture to get an even flow of paint onto the lens, put a few applications to get it even and darker if you wish. I paid $4.95 for the small spray can.
