Has anybody used VHT Night Shades?

Has anybody used the VHT night shades to tint out the parking lenses of there car?

How easy was it and how did it come out?

I am thinking of doing it to the tail lamps also but will try the parking lamps first to get practice.

I've used it on my previous car, stuff is pretty good but don't over do it. Make sure to use a clear coat over it.

just used it on my tail lights, came out pretty good. It is all in the prep work, and using LIGHT coats of the VHT at a time

Well I tackled the parking lights today and it came out pretty good except the clear didn't come out glossy. I had to go back out and get a different brand clear. It's not so bad now.

I started to pull out my tail lights but decided to hold off until I saw how the parking lights came out.

Did you clear yours tail lens or just left it with just the VHT?

What grit sandpaper did you use to prep the tails with?

I use it on a regular basis and I definitely agree with this statement. The nozzles on the cans are crap now and the spray itself does not go on nearly as smooth as it used to.

I recently heard a new recipe for mixing it your self that I am going to start trying and shoot it from a spray gun. Its a mixture of clear and black to create a translucent spray.
