    I would say stained glass paint since its made to give that clear yellow not an opaque paint like yellow. Pick up a can for a few bucks at your local Michaels or arts and crafts store.

    ^^ What he said. I used stained glass paint when I did my taillights, it will allow the light to pass thru better. Not sure if you have a Michael's where you are. You might have to order online.

    Yeah, you can see the ones in my signature pic, that's actually just contact paper (basically clear vinyl) sprayed with the stained glass paint and then applied over the outside of the headlight. Really cheap setup that I have come to like more and more.

    bmw guys use stained glass paint...no idea what you would do if you get tired of it tho

    basically take the covers off the lights, then spray the high beam portion, then snap the lids back on
