You can have a regular ole body shop sand and paint it for you.

I did that and it ended up consting cheaper than evosport and turnaround time was 4 days. I had to buy the OEM set from the dealer.<br> <br> My car is jet black so the paint was readily available. If your car color isn't common, then it might be a different story.

Can you see light through the lenses?

Actually, I just popped mine out, wiped it clean with rubbing alcohol, took a can of Krylon gloss black, and sprayed the thing black.<br> I see amber, though not as bright, still showing through; and the car looks much better.

Nah, just took a deep breath and pushed the button...

I'll post pix showing them with the head-on shot of the SSRs.

sideshot showing painted lens...

Of course, it's not as bright when lit at night but cou can't miss it....<br>
2 light coats, I think a 3rd would be glossier but would block too much light.
