Depends what year/model you need it for.


or... could just get some black paint and do them yourself.:eek:

I did the back lights of my wife's Mini myself with black spary paint and a few coats of clear lacquer on top...

turned out like this...

I wouldn't imagine it's too difficult to do the front lights too, especially if they are plastic lenses

i don't think i'd go as far as using actual spraypaint...but get some

VHT Nightshades (do NOT use the crap from American Muscle)

800 Grit Sandpaper
1500 Grit Sandpaper
2000 grit sandpaper
1 Can of Clear Spray Paint/Lacquer.
1 Bottle Rubbing Alcohol
2 Microfiber Towels

Take your light assemblys off the car.

clean them with hot soapy water, then wipe with rubbing alcohol. Dry thoroughly with microfiber towel.

Take 800 grit and scuff lensed up, but go left to right, not in circles and not up or down. rinse off. take 1500 grit sandpaper and gently sand until lens is smooth (remember go in 1 direction).

dry off lens, rub down with alcohol, dry again.

spray lens with VHT nightshades until desired darkness is achieved. allow to dry for 12 hours. take 2000 grit and hold lens under faucet with cold water. 2000 grit, and gently wetsand all dirt out of the lens.

respray VHT as needed. if no VHT needed, apply clear in light even coats until desired gloss is achieved.

allow 4 hours to dry, then repeat wetsand. respray clear as needed. apply thin layer of turtle wax and buff until shiny, wipe off with microfiber towel.

reinstall and you're done.
