Default vht nightshades on puddle lamps

I have been tossing around the idea of taking some spray tint to the puddle lamps to darken the clear lens. Has anyone done this and how did it turn out? I understand that the puddle light is for helping you at night but i just want to make it a little darker.

thanks everyone

Do you want to lessen the amount of light they give off or darken the lens? Personally, I wish they gave off more light. If it it just the appearance that bothers you, I would just tint the front (vertical) part of the lens. That way you would have the look of a tinted lens but still have adequate light.

I wish they had made the puddle lamp fixture easy to remove so you could upgrade the LED's to something more powerful. I want more light from mine.

It's not easy, well... not for the faint of heart really, but there is a way.

that is a good question...how can the lens be removed? I like the idea of tinting the front of the lens but still have good light from the lamps.

Use the cabin control and move the mirror all the way down. Take your fingers and pull down on the top of the mirror towards your body until the mirror releases from the motor and there are 3 screws down on the inside of the housing holding the lense in place. Again, thin line between: Oh sh@t it's going to break! and just a little pull and..... pop right off!
