In Japan town ( Bay area in CA), there is an auto shop that sells a spray kit for tail lights. It is intended for blacking (or darken) the tail lights. After it dry, it becomes a black film. You can peel it off easy. The result is very good!! It looks great.

A single can cost $30 and it can mask 2-3 sets of tail lights.

ONE drawback. They are not permanent. It looks bad if it gets scratches. Then, you have to take off the film and re-apply it.

Hope it helps,

The spray isn't that bad at all. It is water proof, and it really stays. Unless, ppl. scratch it hard. All you need to do is make it thick.

Your other option is to use transparent smoke paint available at your local hobby shop for only $6 a can. Just add as many coats as you want. (depending on how dark you want it) A final coal of clearcoat closs with UV protection and you have a set of really hot taillight lenses that will last....

I bought one in Japan town, San Francisco, CA.

Sorry, I can't tell you the name since I can't read Japanese.

But, I will try to see if they have it available on the net.

After it dry, it becomes a film and you can tear it off just like a packaging tape.

It cost $30 for each can. Luckly, you can make 2 -3 pairs. Maybe you can share the cost with other local people.  :)

CelicaFan,

Where do you live? Are you  living in bay area too?

If you need it so bad, you can send me $$ and I can get you one.

I don't live in the bay area, but I'm down there every once in a while & I'm in the northbay all the time...I wouldn't mind the drive into the city to pick it up.
But....I think I'm going to get another set of tail light covers & paint those w/ the transparent paint from a hobby store,  like roo suggested.

no problem. Please show us how it looks when you have a set painted.
