Are you tinting the whole taillamp or just the signal and reverse? If I were to do the whole taillamp, I'd put film over it. For the signal and reverse, I'd spray them with either VHT Nite-Shades to darken them or Krylon Glass Paint to colour them red. Just be sure to sand it with some 1000grit so it sticks better.

i think spray would be easiest. VHT Nightshades. comes off with 100% rubbing alcohol. and if its too dark you can just rub a little alcohol on it to lighten it up.

I'm actually going to be trying the film this weekend (weather permitting...I WISH I HAD A GARAGE!!!). The trick to stretching vinyl over complex curves is heat - using a heat gun/hair dryer to warm up the vinyl. We've had to wrap full vehicles in vinyl and heat helps the graphics conform to the vehicle's curves... There's a ton of demos on YouTube that help describe the whole process.
