    Looks okay, but personally I'd avoid it.

    Don't like the idea of 'DIY tinting', as with sprayed 'Smoked' lights.

    Just a no-no for me, I'm afraid. If you try it, let us know how it goes!

    Not to sure just cant see it being that good a finish as i'd imagine it'd be difficult to get an even surface.

    yeah seconded and it would be a pig to mask things off surely?
