it's fairly easy if you have all the materials , first you will need to clean them, use scotch pad or sand them smooth to get rid of the raised lettering with 320 grit sandpaper, then reduce black basecoat 1 part paint to 4-6 parts reducer ,spray light coats to a desired coverage and then follow with the clearcoat
Hope that helps

I just put this 3m film that my buddy had over them. you heat up the film with a hair dryer and then stretch it over the lights. I've had it on for a few months and no problems so far. looks A LOT better too

You can get it at most auto parts stores. Autozone, Pep Boys, etc.

I know this is a little old but you can also use model airplane paints.. from the rattle can. They have translucent colors. Some guy with a Mk3 yellowed out his fog lights a while back and they're holding up pretty good. I'd imagine it'd work better on the much cooler-running marker lights.

VHT nite shades works amazingly well, I have used it twice on my turn signals and taillights! It makes the car look so much better, especially when your car is black.
