How do I semi-smoke my clears?



Hey,

I was photoshoping a bit and also foudn this pic and thought my corners would look much better smoked. (They kind of stand out now, no?) I searched around and saw how Justin did it but he completely made them almost black. I wanna go for the look in the pic. Is this relatively easy to do or no? How do you spray the inside uniformly and stuff?





This is a quick photoshop I did of before and after, but perhaps a little darker, maybe not. That's another problem I would have. How would I know how much to spray it. It's not like in photoshop where I can go back and forth.

those are actually smoked corners on that car.
if you do it yourself, it won't look the same.

So basically it's not possible to do it yourself unless you completely black it out?

you can lightly smoke, but it wont look the same, either buy night shades (spray on product) or new smoked clears.

I have a paint I purchased specifically to make lens smoked. Its from japan and I have never tested it as I sold my last car before I could give it a shot.
