WARNING: Smokey's Lights / Centennial, Colorado

So I'm not sure if this is exactly the right place for this thread, but I figured it would attract the most pertinent attention here.

It is both a warning and an asked favor.

I had my taillights tinted by a shop in Centennial, Colorado called Smokey's Lights. I found them online, bought the lights from them, but had them paint my custom scheme. Extremely pleased with the results; glass smooth, color-matched, and precise lines. So when I got around to getting my front turns done to match I naturally contacted their shop again. Talked about my design, got a quote, bought some lights off eBay and had them shipped out there, and last I heard the lights were taped off and ready to be painted in the morning. That was two weeks ago. Since then I've gotten no email response, their web site is down, eBay store gone, and phone number (found through PayPal) sounds like a fax number. So the warning is not to do buisness with this shop (I don't know how you would now anyways), and the favor is that if anyone sees a set of tinted XK headlights/turns for sale anywhere if you would let me know so I can get my lights back.

Airdog, that'd be awesome. I'd like to think that he just dropped his phone (and computer) in the toilet or that his great aunt came down with dysentery, but at my core I don't expect much to surface, so don't spend too much time and energy on it. I just can't figure out what great benefit he would get from a set of used XK headlights (especially when I haven't paid for painting yet). But for what it's worth the address I sent stuff to was 7533 S Rosemary Cir. Thanks again for your help.

That address is about 8 blocks away from where I am right now...at work. By Google satellite photos, it looks residential, but maybe he runs a shop out his garage or something. PM me all your contact info that you placed the order with, the date you shipped the lights, and maybe any tracking info to go with it. If I happen to talk to the guy, I'd have some info to go off of...stay tuned.

Live video from Centennial Colorado:

We got the place surrounded....there are Cops in the back yard.

Two black helicopters are circling overhead.

The SWAT team from Denver is just minutes away.

All the residents for two block around have been evacuated.

A specially trained bloodhound is on the way. This dog has been trained in the detection of headlight plastic even if disquised by the smell of drugs.

Stay tuned for developments................

Haha that's right Huey. Comin' in hot! Watch out!

Nah, I don't plan on actually approaching the guy...just want to see if his so called "business" still exists...and go from there.

Huey, I like your approach, especially the plastics dog (Jimmy?).

Airdog, I just sent you a PM with all my info, and tons of thanks.

Well is sounds like our man on the spot "Airdog625" has it under control. Maybe he will set up live survellance to prevent the turn signals from sneaking out under cover of darkness. I do not know about you guys, but I can't wait for this standoff to end, hopefully without loss of life or light output.

Actually, we are hoping for some loss of light. The goal is a dark color-matched black with only the reflector strips left amber. But I do concur with the preservation of life.
