Nice! Definitely interested in this (and other homebrew mods). You should write up a tutorial or tell me how...

I am tempted to just take out the bulbs and spray it black with real paint, but that wouldn't reall be a safe thing to do.

but with the transparent black the light still shines through. it is a lot dimmer, but still noticeable.
