Tail Lights

This has been bothering me... I've seen a few Cobalts at cardomain.com and they've had a kind of dark grey smoked tail light lenses. Anyone know where I can get my hands on some of these? And if so, how much would they run me?

Two options... 1) AutoZone, ask for the smoke taillamp covers by Auto Vent Shade. -or- 2) (this is where a professional comes in handy) Take out the lamps. Wet sand with 2000 grit sandpaper. Spray with a urethane-based clearcoat with a smoke, or black tint. This is permanant though, so no reversal, or just "take off" that covers for this option. I, personally, would go with the covers if they dont look too gay.

lol...so I had an idea. Say I were to have the tail lights tinted with a window tint. Would that work? Or would they get too hot from the light bulb inside and peel the tint?

Its not a problem of it getting too hot, the problem would be that the window tint wouldnt form to the shape of the taillamp too well, since it is round and kinda like the bottom of a coke bottle. I have done this before on my 3rd gen camaro, Take some ladies black panty hose and pull over the light, it lets enough light through, but still looks like blackouts.
