RobPA, my digital camera actually makes them look a lot better than they are. In person they aren't that great looking, as i'm planning on taking the paint off with mineral spirits and re-doing them. Or getting some real window tint and using that. But there's some runs on the lights, nothing obvious, but it's there. Also some spots in the tint that are darker than others which made me unhappy. From an average distance it looks really good, upon closer inspection, EWW. I'm not proud of my work, but the idea is accomplished.

I suggest painting on a really hot/humid day and out of the wind, preferably in a garage if you have one or access to one.

This paint sticks on extremely well also. I did this same mod to my previous car (Prelude) and over a year the paint never chipped off. I sponge over them every time I wash the car.

For the ultimate clean look, get a pro to apply window tint to the lenses.
