I'm thinking the giant red corners of my rear end need to be a little more subtle.
I like tinted tails, but here in CA they want to pull you over for almost anything, and tinted tails are on their list of no-nos.

So, I've seen lots of lights that have been masked off and 're-shaped' with body color, but what about tinting the entire lens with a color other than the typical dark black?

How difficult would it be to mask off circles in front of the lights, turning the 'surrounding area' silver to match the car?

Or.....

Would silver work on the whole thing?

I think that toycrypt has what you are thinking of doing.

Both of those are good options.

I'm thinking vinyl overlay instead of paint. (This would need round coutouts for the lights)

This approach seems like it might be an option.
