Can EB taillights be tinted?

I've noticed some Ef-el's are able to have their taillights tinted to almost black, does anyone know if this can be done to ed taillights? I've tried to find the clear taillights like on the Au's but they just don't seem to be around so i'm going with making them darker instead. Has anyone done this to their car or know where to get them done?
Any help would be appreciated

On my old EB I just got hold of a can of night shade for my back taillights, cant remember how much but they came up really well, just have to be carefull to spray them evenly.

Yep, they can be tinted.....but if they are tooo dark depending on the copper you can also be defected for it.

Here are mine tinted in the picture which were on my ea now on my white eb, the guy i brought them off told me that it cost him around $20-30.

A friend of mine that is a panel beater gave his tail lights a light once over
in a black pearl, it came up a treat and looks Mad in the sun light.

Re: Can EB taillights be tinted?

get hold of a nibler and remove the back cover of the tail light.
then cut/remove amber/red lense off tail light.
cut round circle in red lence and replace but leave amber section out(you just use amber globes instead).
then glue back together with some sort of selastic and refit into EB/ED.
