I followed this thread and must say that mine came out pretty good, although I put on one too many coats and they're darker than I'd like them. I thought they'd brighten up in the sunlight, but no dice.
Tamiya X-19 was used to darken, and Tamiya X-22 clearcoat was used on top. I'd hoping the clearcoat will help protect it. Thanks to 1bad16V and VRClowncar for helping me with a few questions.
Now the pics...
Untouched turn, sanded dummy, dummy with one coat of smoke:

One coat versus 2 coats:

Finished:

Also got my euro plate and put it on Saturday.
Everything installed:

Car's all the way on the right.

If you don't like it, sand it off and reapply http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Pics of home-smoked turns and dummies (mack73)

i had my lights done like that too.. then a couple months ago i took a short all highway road trip, about 400 miles round trip, and they got chipped pretty bad, so i took a flathead screwdriver and scrapped it all off
