For ur side markers u can get pre cut tint on eBay for $6? As for ur tails, Idk I went went smokes leds. U could do urself but seems like it'd be a hastle and tinted the third break light myself, no problem.

VHT Night shades is great. Sand down the plastic a little and do about 3 coats. Looks great and you have no problem seeing the lights come on at day or night. One can will be more than enough and it's only like $7

wet-sand your tail lights with 1500 grit, put some rubbing alchol to clean off the plastic, spray 3 coats 10-15 minutes apart, let them dry.

Then wet-sand with 2,000 grit, throw 2-3 coats of clear on them, let it dry.
Wet-sand with 2,000 grit again, lightly, throw some polish on them.. then go to work buffing them
They'll come out great if you put the time into it.
