I used VHT Night Shades on mine.
They came out way too dark.

Was planning on using some mini-brights
like the ones from the R&G tail kit anyway,
so I gave it a shot.

...I like being seen too much to keep using
em blacked out.

I'm not sure where you can find any smoked
for the 09.

Good luck.

I read of someone who ordered some smoked lenses, but they were still too clear. Sounds like you don't want go thru that again.

Another option is to buy some model spray paint in transparent black and spray very light coats on the lenses until they get to your desired level. Probably cheaper and you will get your desired finish.

Try plastidip smoke, you can vary the tint, start off lighter and add more, or if you go too dark peel it off and try again..

To top it off, they have a gloss coat as well
