Does anyone make aftermarket smoked headlights or know of a reputable place that sells the tint pre cut to fit or even some covers that looks real nice? I've used vht on everything but headlights I'd rather make not so permanent. Thanks guys.

But I personally do not recommend films for tails or head lights. How well will they hold under weather conditions and snow and bugs etc etc I cannot say. Nor would I risk it so its all on you what you do from here :thumbsup:

Well these headlights have already been taken apart and corners were tinted. The main reason for me wanting to tint them is because they are turning yellowish and dulling out bad. Unless someone has a good fix for that?

There are headlight restoration kits out there to fix that, or you can just wet sand the lenses yourself as some other members have done. I bought the 3M headlight kit from Advance Auto, it worked pretty well, although I took the headlights off my truck (since I was modding them) so I couldn't get as much leverage since you're supposed to do it with them on the truck.

When you're done sanding, yeah you'll want to buff and polish them. I think I saw one thread not too long ago, where one member had to sand the inside of the lenses, to get them clear again, so maybe that could be part of your problem? :undecided: At least since yours have been opened already, it would be easy to get in there to work on them, then reseal them up. :yes:

I might try that. Thanks man. I have also never tried to restore kits that have the different grits of polishing paper only ones I've tried were just a buffing pad on a drill.
