Tinting headlight side marker

I was wondering if anyone has done this and if you could post pictures if you've don't it. And a DIY would be helpful!

I have a closer up picture as well if you want one. Custom did the interior of the housing and tinted the signal light with VHT spray.

Here is a short description of the DIY on how I did it. Message me with any specific questions.

1. Remove bumper and headlight assembly.
2. Remove bulbs and the corner screw that hold the assembly together(behind the rubber drain on back side of signal light)
3. Bake assembly in oven at 200F for 10 min.
4. Pry apart with a screw driver. Take your time and make sure you unclip the 4 clips that are on the outside. Careful when taking apart as the signal led wire needs to be unplugged when the lens comes off.
5. With a torx(not sure of size at the moment but its small) remove the headlight shrouds in the lens. You will now have the signal indicator assembly out.
6. Spray clear cover to the signal assembly(held on by two small clips) You can also remove the other chrome parts at this time as well if you wish to black it out (sand the chrome off, primer, paint, I used a clear coat after painting)
7. Reverse steps to reassemble. Make sure to use new glue to seal shut. Just scrape old seal out with a screw driver carefully and push new seal into the groove, then heat a push together.

Here is a link to the heat seal you should get. http://www.theretrofitsource.com/acc...l#.UvUSl_ldXHo

Very important to use new heat seal so that no condensation will get into the assembly.

PM me if you need more specific details.

That was a picture before the drop. Here is pic after the drop, just doesn't show the headlight as clear as the other one.
