yah the spray on tint for lights work well but i dont think you would want to use it on your headlights because you cant take it off during the night and if you dont put a real even coat without any drip marks it wont look good. my friend tried it on his explorer and it will show every flaw with the spray tint on the headlights (back lights look good with spray tint though) and its kinda odd because sometimes it looks purple, and if you dont have clear corners it looks really wierd.

I would recommend upgrading you fog lights to 55w + driving lights before doing this. Sand the headlight before you spray. Do 3 coats of VHT, letting dry and sanding before each coat. Don't worry about going too dark, just try to make it even without any runs. On the last coat sand it and take it to a body shop to get clear coated.

Here is a pic of Ryan'* (JLAudioEclipse) taillights complete after following the steps above.

Headlights take alot of abuse. A rock chip will ruin a good tint job very quickly.

I've tinted the tails on both of my cars with great results. My website has pics and steps. I've posted the most recent here, too.
