Smoke Mirror Lights

Wheres the best place to buy the covers and bulbs. Looked into Recon, but 100 bones for two peices of plastic and some 20 cent bulbs. Is it easier to just get a body shop to smoke them with a shot a paint or what?

Why dont you try taking it to a tint shop and have them put window tint on them.

Use a thin flathead screwdriver. There is a tab you move and push the lens straight out from the mirror side (outside end). Move the mirror inward toward the vehicle so that you can see and have more working space. It is a very simple procedure. The Recon lens is smoked but also is LED to coordinate with other optional LED lighting on the truck hence the price.
