Spray tinted my tail lights and mirror marker lights (pics)

So today I spray tinted my tail lights and mirror marker lights on my F350. Here is what I did. Cleaned them with grease and wax remover twice. Sprayed them with Dupli-Color Adhesion Promoter. Then sprayed them with Rust-Oleum Lens tint. I let them sit about 30 mins and then cleared them with some Nason Clear for longevity. I think that they turned out pretty nice. What do you think?

Most of the "crap jobs" are the one that weren't clear coated. I did the set on my 2005 and they came out good but I used a old can of clear and it didn't spray smooth and made it feel somewhat textured. Bought a fresh can of clear and did my buddies ranger and it came out great.

To the op, looks great I will be doing this as soon as I get a replacement tailight. One of mine are cracked

How'd you pop the side markers out of your mirrors? I want to tint mine as well. Yours looks like it came out great! How well do they show up at night now that they're tinted?
