Hi SVO302

Yeah - the stuff you use to tint the lenses is a paint. I used to use it on my RC cars.

A work mate of mine just tinted the lenses on his proton (it looks really ricey) I can ask him how much it was and where he got it from if you like..

I think you can pick tint coloured paint at Supercheap Auto, but just a word of warning, any kind of tint of any of the exterior lights is illegal (in NSW atleast, probably the other states aswell??) and the cops can pull you up for it.

i have all my lences on my white elxr8 tinted it looks good.
it is not just paint it is a special spray on tint in a can.
you can use black paint mixed with clear but for it to realy stick to the plastic you have to use a plastic primer.

Alrighty i thought DANG it Ive seen a whole bunch of crumpledoore's with it done & 1 Ford so i have bitten the bullet & tried it out.
I went to a hobby shop & bought a "translucent window tint spray" After ripp'n tha lenses out, carefully applying layers to both lenses so that the tinting was even I have ended up with a masterpiece.
The tint looks dark but u can EASILY see the amberflashing & Whoa baby on a Black Ed XR8 it has ROOLY set it OFF Looks AWESOME!!!
thanx to those that replied here CHEERS
