CT sells it. Its not cheap, about $50 a roll about 8" wide, but you have plenty. I only put it on the front facing area, and didn't try to wrap it around, and it was fine.

Yo, I'll totally get you to do this. I think this would look legit on a white E30. Does light still shine through ok?

Joey, you can simply wet sand the lights with 2000 grit and plastic polish. I'd then cover them in laminate film. However, the E39 fogs are a great candidate for clear coat.
How much for a set of e30 tails with the smoked finish polished?
