There is black out paint that comes in a can, you could spray them with that and spray some clear coat over it. OR you could have a professional painter mix the paint and do it. You can buy black caps and pop them on. You can also buy a whole light assembly that comes blacked out like recon lighting

Be careful blacking out your taillights. Unless they are DOT approved (Read Recon) and you get rearended the person that hits you can get out of it by proving that you deliberately altered the warning lights to a state that was less visible than the legal DOT amount. Will this happen every time? No, but are you willing to take the chance?

JMHO..

VHT Niteshades 3 coats. Sand lightly with 1500+ grit then 3-4 coats of clear coat. Simple and cheap still looks good
