normally rust will do that for you:) -- no charge, courtesy of Alfa Romeo's high quality italian metal:)!

Anyway what do you mean? colour, as in french style yellow lights?
There is a film you can get like decalfx or cleardefender, something like that?
Or yellow bulbs or yellow transparent paint for the bulbs themselves ....

Here's a little blurb on the French "selective yellow" headlights:

Tamerlane's Thoughts: The Yellow Headlights of France

and: http://www.danielsternlighting.com/images/S-Yellow.pdf

H4 style headlamps had a capsule of selective yellow glass that fit over the bulb inside, or an actual yellow bulb,

Now, if you want to tint them any other color, say blue to simulate HID lights, you will look like a poseur. Red of course will get you in trouble with the law.

The second article recommends Dupli-Color Metalcast yellow. It comes in other colors too, if you must.

Good luck.
