Do you have any pics from before the tint? I could do the same with that. I like the look of them tinted, and I think it would look pretty cool of you done the chrome with tint, so its the same color as the tails themselves.

Scoff the chrome hard and prep/wipe totally dry with a solvent if you decide to do it or it will begin peeling in not time.
