spray on tint?

Keep reading how horrible the fit of the recon turn signal lights are and was wondering if anyone has tried a spray on tint instead and how well it worked ...?

If I would have known about the Recon lights before I bought them I would have done the tint. It should work fine because I see tail light tinted all the time and haven't seem any issues with that. As soon as my Recon lights turn purple I'll be putting the stock one's back in and use hobby store spray tint to smoke them.

i'll have to grab some pics of my cab lights... i did the spray tint last weekend on the cab lights and 3rd brake light came out looking decent... not perfect because it was a windy day but didnt have anything else to do... making my sub box was put on hold due to damaged sub

go to a r/c hobby store and they should have spray tint for the plastic bodies that r/c cars use once you get the desired tint put a couple coats of clear on it and be happy with the $16 that you spent instead of 100+ plus i can easily find bulbs for my cab light and 3rd brake light... gonna do the mirror lights soon... but dont think they will hold up to tree branches very well

I tried it and it didn't work out real well. Ending up getting some from another member of the site and they look great. I think he had an autobody shop mix black auto paint and clear coat and spray the lense until he got it as dark as he liked it. I'll try and find some pictures.

i opted for the body shops clear black mix and it turned out really good. if it goes over an orange lense it will give it a brownish hue if you don't go dark enough but it looks way better than orange. not sure about the tint in a spray can though.

looks like crap after a while, it doesnt shine like the black paint mixed with clear. I tried it out on my cab lights, going to one day get all my lights done with the automotive paint
