    do you mean incorporating the lens or just getting the tint effect?

    if you want the lense...Here

    Video's for making projectors....Here

    But that said, with all the effort, and materials, you'd be better off saving for the real deal!

    oh right, thought you wanted projectors as you used the sharkeye pic.

    But them in the oven at 180 degrees, and split them open, then spray the inserts black. I shall try and find a thread using the search button for you...

    i think its usually about 10-15mins but use your common sense. As soon has the glue becomes soft, then take them out, but dont leave them in too long or they'll end up becoming distorted.

    Yeah, people on the focus forums use satin black halfords paint??
