I got stainglassed paint from Michels crafts store.
removed the lense,
cleaned it with a damp cloth and soap,
taped off the amber portion,
and sprayed one coat on the lense.
let it dry for an hour,
and put it back on.
was pretty easy, but you will notice that the drivers side lamp has fadded, I don't know if this is from the way I parked in my old job so that the sun set on that side every day, or if it from the heat of the exhaust.

but for whatever reason if has faded and looks ugly. I've resprayed the drivers side again and it has again faded, so I'm going to stop fighting it and buy some smoked lamps.
