Tinted Headlights

So I picked up a set of OEM headlights that I want to play around with. I plan on tinting (smoking) them. I plan on doing this with a spray can. So here's my question what brand should I use to paint them. I was told VHT is the way to go, where I figured Krylon, since well I use that **** on everything and it comes out nice.

Re: Tinted Headlights

Yah just remember to start out with a few light coats. Make em too dark right away and your ****ed.
Start light and decide how dark you want to go.
You can always darken them by adding more coats later on.

Re: Tinted Headlights

Absolutely. I picked up a Rustolem and Krylon. I looked on VHT's site and say they go for $23 bucks! Plus it looked like it would get too dark (black instead of smoked). So I went up to Ace where I had $5 off thanks to their reward program. Discounts FTW.

Re: Tinted Headlights

I tried cleaning them up and such today but I rushed it; lost all the good sanding paper; no polish (I thought I had everything) and I am pissed that I started it. Plus it started to get windy.

Anyways I'm in a bad mood now and it might be another week before I'll let you all know how it really goes.

Yah I've heard that those dim the hell out of your lights at night.
I guess you could buy a brighter bulb.
I'd probably go with a paint-on approach, or buy the smoked headlights.

Re: Tinted Headlights

I forgot what I paid for them. I think at the time (2-3 years ago) it seemed like a little much but I liked them so I felt it was worth it.
