Anyone know where I can send in my lights so they can get professionally smoked? Or is there someone who sells them like that?

(Hmmm apparently that link is no longer working, but I found this one on a google search: http://www.jonstintedtails.com/products.htm)
OR try a local body shop. Most may not want to do it was tinted tail light laws vary from state to state.
Do it yourself:
Buy VHT niteshades. Its sold as an 'off road only' product usually. Ask for it at the counter if you can't locate it on the shelf.
The key to using niteshade is to do many light, even shades.
I did both tail lights as the same, doing the same light layers on each, they turned out perfectly even and exactly as I wanted. It is important not to go too fast, niteshades runs easily.
After you are all done I suggest putting several coats of clear coat to protect it from scratches. Doing the inside of the tail light would be best but many lights don't come apart.
You can check my website below or search on carpron.com (jeremy mr2) if you want to see how it turned out.
