Photoshop Request...Smoked out lights

I just took a random black clk pic off ebay. I want to smoke out my tail lights, but I don't know what would look better. Having just the white reverse light strip to be smoked out, or having all the red parts blacked out and leave the reverse strip white. Also if you can just black out everything that would be nice too, but I probably won't end up doing that.

Thanks alot...

RE: Photoshop Request...Smoked out lights

I think the best looking scheme would be to leave the indicators clear.

RE: Photoshop Request...Smoked out lights

those are very bad photochops. But they still give you a gd idea.

I want to do the same thing but i think the best more subtle option is just slightly blackening the white part, and leaving the rest red.

Seen it on a few cars and it looks really gd.

Can some peopel get some pics up if possible

THANKS A LOT

That looks perfect.

How do you do it?
Do you smoke it from the outside or the inside and is it possible to get a tutorial on how to do it?

THANKS

In that thread, do you actually buy new lights all togteher? and then they send you the new lights tinted? or do you send them yours then they spray them and send them back?

And is the job chappy got the cheaper $90 per light job?

As Josh pointed out, I had them professionally done. The shop is in California and I had them order 4 new tail lights (2 per side) from their local Mercedes-Benz dealer. Then, they did the job and shipped them to me in GA. I had my tech install and test the lights.
josh? whatcha talkin bout willis? [:D]
