I dont know if you want something that you can take off or something permanent, but I know of one way you can do it. My brother has painted almost all of the lights on his camaro with some type of translucent paint....you can get it at hobby stores I think, but you just sand the lights and spray paint them. He used silver since his car is silver and it looks really nice, the only downside is that if you get sick of it or anything, youre stuck because you cant take it off...anyway thats just my .02

oh yeah and if you want to see what this looks like just let me know and I will post a link to his web site and you can check it out for yourself. Good luck!! :) :D

Use some white vinyl to do it. I used black vinyl to do mine, white would work the same way. It's not permanent, so if you don't like it, just take it off.

He doesnt have any recent pics on there, he has painted all the marker lights, front turn signals, and the third brake light...if you like the looks of what he has done, let me know and I will see if I can get him to post some more recent pics or something.

Rather simple, and dirt cheap. White pantyhose. Real simple light shines through, its the way to go.
