I was wary at first because I did not want to sand my brand new Spyder taillights. Tried Plasti-Dip Smoke but it ended up milky may be my skills either way I gave it two weeks and it had to go. I have to say all of the Plasti-Dip paint I've used is great and best of all it's tough but will easily peel off with no damage. That being said, I used some 400 grit sandpaper and water on the lenses. I put two coats of VHT Night-Shades on and that was dark enough for me. Added three coats of clear and these lights look like factory smoked lenses! Go light on the coats and the flash time will let you decide how dark you want to go. I highly recommend this product.

I have wanted to do this ever since I got the car.
I think it is the most dramatic and cheapest modification anyone can do.
It only took me a few hours and I'm quite pleased with the results!
If you look at the pictures for this product, my car is the Black 4dr Infinti G35...

VHT Night-Shades paint is an excellent product for those who want to get that expensive blackened tail light look for cheap. This product is also great for those of us who want that look, but can't find any dealers who make tail light covers for our year and make of autos. Using two light coats of this paint gets a nice, full coverage, and lets the maximum amount of light through when applying the brakes. Because you don't have to use a ton of this paint to get coverage, you can easily do 4-5 cars worth of lights per can of paint. Compairing $13 per can to $35 for covers, and even up to $250 for a full tail light assembly, how can you go wrong?

Love this stuff. Easy to use. It's almost fool proof, just don't spray too close, too far, too slow or too fast. Use smooth and steady strokes from 6-8" away and let each coat dry. Each coat makes it darker, so spray according to your tastes. Clear coat over it is recommended as it does tend to fade over the rainy and winter months without clear over it. It will run so be careful spraying too close.

Tail lights looking sexy! I also used a hardcore clear coat which apparently has cyanide and is lethal even to the touch...😐 But I digress

I tried the VHT nightshades over replacing my 99 Tahoe tail lights that were sun faded at the top..This was cheaper and I gave it a shot. I cleaned them really good but I did not sand them. I shot 3 coats of nightshade on them with 20 minutes in between each coat. Then I let that cure for 2 days. Then I cleaned them again and used a gloss clear coat (rattle can) I got from wal mart. I applied 6 coats with a wet sand using 1000 grit sandpaper in between each coat. Thats it. They turned out nice for me and it covered the sun fade I had going on. There are tons of youtube videos out there on HOW TO use this stuff. I took the chance of not sanding my tail lights and they came out fine. Honestly I cleaned mine with soap and warm water, dried them and then used White Vinegar and a soft cloth to finish up and I had no cracking. But that's your call. I hope this video helps you. Happy Shopping & Tinting!!
