you can probably find it at any auto store... i'd recommend rustoleum tint even though i haven't tried it. it has a glossy finish to it. and don't do your headlights. it will cut your light alot.. pop the lense off and paint the housing black, it'll look even better.

Yup! It is a bonsai tree that I had for around 7 years before it died, and rather than throw it away, it dawned on me that there was indeed a way to preserve it. And voila!

Please refrain from spray tinting your lights.... In most cases cops will be 99% more apt to pull you over due to it.... Get ses dark tails or led ones on ebay. The only thing i would suggest on any exterior lighting of your car is lamin x . While still illegal to do it simply peels off.. You won't have to go buy new taillights after you get pulled over the first time. On your headlights anything "tinted" will drastically kill your light output and puts both you and others on the road in danger. Taillights the same... As a part time Cybercrime "assistant" for the county, i cannot tell you how many times i have called a OD in the area to pull over some jackass that has his taillights tinted at night and almost rear end them because they are hitting the brakes but it is not even as bright as the lights would have been on at night anyways without the pedal depressed....

i have only been pulled over once for my tails being tinted... and that was when they were "blacked out." yes, it was definitely too dark. since then, i have retinted them very lightly. very little light is restricted, as they still appear to be a dark red without the brake depressed.

i would say, if you are going to tint your tails, make sure you do it lighter so it appears "smoked" and not dark. just my 2 cents.

and i agree with you, Crice8. Headlights should definitely not be tinted... get black housings instead, gives almost the same visual appearance without effecting light output.
