Thinking of tinting the clear lense on the fog and reverse lights has any one done this and could they recommend any spray tint going to try and do just the clear lense and leave the red reflective part as it is
Just that I,ve put smoked led lights on the rear and want everything to blend in not going to go to dark just like a light smoke do the st clear brake light lense the same . Any pointers welcome

If you find a spray that is legal can you let me know. Every spray I find says not for road use.

Karl got a tin of savage tint spray from motor world 9.99 doesn't say anything about it not being legal I'm leaving the reflector bit just spraying the clear lense but don't want to go to dark just enough to match the tinted led lights I,ve fitted hoping to do them later on today or Tommrow will post some pics of them done (if I make a decent job lol ).

Spot on mate. How did you find it? Is it the same process as spray paint?
