Compass tail light and corner light tint

I would like to tint my corner and tail lights, can anybody post a link to any websites that have both? Or one for each? I am not looking to go through hell to install the tint.

They sell the stuff in a can. Just don't make it too dark or you'll get a ticket.

fixed that for you. tinting tail lights isn't a good idea. sometimes things are illegal for a good reason. if you're in an accident where someone hits you from behind, and you have tinted tail lights, guess whos fault it is?

I did all of mine a while back using a can of spray tint from advance auto parts. did 3 to 4 light layers on everything. I've been pulled over a few times and maryland state troopers havent said anything to me. So if you do it go easy and you'll be fine

I used a light tint on my lights so that way they all matched and they didn't have to come off the jeep. I got them done for 40 bucks and I can remove it at any time.
