Nightshade on reflectors

Has anyone put nightshade on red reflectors?

I want to know if I nightshade the red reflector strip on my reversing lights, whether it will still reflect red when hit with lights.

If we do it on our front turns, I don't see why you can't?
Just as long as you can see the light shine through.

That's the question I guess....it doesn't have a light source coming from behind. It relies on light hitting the lens and reflecting back

it depends on how heavily it is sprayed, if you just do a light coating it will be ok and still reflect. If you want it to look really dark then chances are it won't reflect at all.
