i was thinking about making all my dome lights and everything match the dash board red theme... how hard would it be to tint the door liights and domes? paint it or use red cling wrap or red lens?

Some members have done it, BonneMeMN, Bonnie94sse, Merlin, and myself in my old Bonneville.

Look for 194R bulbs and I used red tint film and tinted the inside of the lens'. Works like a champ. Also, another possible route is gel caps from Autozone.

Yes to all... Someone used red gel (like they use on theater lights) on theirs and someone else here use candy apple red paint on their bulbs....
