blacked out marker lights

Recommended Posts


Loren, your name has come up many times as the go to guy so i amjust going to repost to you: :oops: I am including photos of my sold 996 02 with custom tail and side markers. I bought them off a show car 01 996TT. I don't know the origin but i think they came from europe. :banghead: I would like to do the same on my 997, It looks great on a black car and has a real finished look during the day, The lights still remain reflective at night so there is no DOT problems in WI anyway. Any Ideas of where to start. I would also be interested in the insight of doing this myself. It looks like a custom job, where they spray from the inside, but since i sold the car i cant reverse engineer it. I was lucky to keep the photos. If you can give me an insight of what is used (paint or stain with a dremel and epoxy to get the blacking sprayed), I will start testing on parts in my shop. Hope someone can help. Also is this the best place to post these questions or should i copy Loren at Renntech?

Do a search on the web there are companies that specialize in tinting lights. My tailights are also tinted on my 996 ocean blue and look great IMHO. I believe it is an exterior applied paint and clear coat, not applied to the inside of the lights.
