I actually bought the smoked overlays and didn't like them. It made it too dark. I then cut them in half and installed them on the top only; still didn't like them.

Not do it as dark as the PS, lighter might look good.

It would look ok only if it was a LIGHT tint. Anything really dark will look tacky....
