Smoked Taillights

I have an '06 AWD w/o the sports package. I'm looking to upgrade the tails to clear, but would prefer to smoke the tails. I assume I need to purchase clear tails have have them smoked...?

Any tips how to do this from anyone that has already done it?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Smoked Taillights

You can smoker either the red OR the clear tails... obviously, smoking the red, there'll be a red tinge... if you ONLY want a greyish smoke color then you'll have to get clears first... and it's a painting process that's hard to get consistent along ALL 4 parts of the clear tails, so if you decide to do it, make sure you take it to a GOOD shop...

Re: Smoked Taillights

Occasionally you can find tails on here that are already smoked. In fact I think JBaker still has his smoked clears...

Re: Smoked Taillights

Thanks Dat, I just ordered the clear.

Dasch-I already PM'd JBaker about his. They are gone.

Anyone know a "GOOD" place in Milwaukee to have these painted?

Wait! I take that back. I contacted JBaker about the Z-Tube, not his tails. I am nowhere near him to swap the tails.
