Blackout tape on mine works pretty good.Will crack on you after a while though.Still a cheap and replacable way to go.

Default spray paint

I used a couple thin coats of spray paint made for plastics.The paint is really resilient and won't crack. But it is on the front end of your car so chipping could just happen Just have to make sure it'* clean and scuffing up the area you want to paint doesn't hurt. Using thin coats works to best until it blacks out. Lighter colors might have the light bleed through so a dark color primer might be needed before adding the color. But I would go spray paint.

I would use a product called "VHT night shades"


It'* black when lights are off but when lights are on it doesn't restrict your vision.

Cool idea though
