I didn't sand them at all. I just cleaned them really well then tapped and applied the nite-shades. I saw that misfire had done his without sanding them and like you i didn't want to sand the lights. They look good but if you get real close you can see it didn't apply evenly and there are some spots if you get within a few inches. I think this would have worked better if i had not tried to do this in almost freezing temps. I would recommend you shake the crap out of the can then apply.

I may remove it with some non-acetate nail polish remover or gas then reapply it.
