BlueBat is good but you can also buy some VHT Nite shades black transparent spray. I bought a used set of lights off ebay for $5 bucks and wanted to see how they looked blackedout. I just masked off the reverse light and tinted the lights. I need to put some clear on them tommorrow. But here is a pic.

Here is a pic after I tinted the lens.

As you can see they look dull and rough.
I then wetsanded the tint with 2000 grit sandpaper. Then I applied clear coat over the tint and wetsanded again. Then just finish with fine rubbing compound to bring back the shine. Here are a couple pics of the finished product.
