Jesus, 8 really! I was thinking no more than 4 that way it will be more like a darker smoke the completly blacked out. I'll see how that looks for a while, & throw on another coat if I'm not happy w/ it.

Oh yeah, by the way. Niteshade has finally been ordered!!!
Hopefully I'll have it finished next weekend!!!

They turn out glossy, not flat right? What about washing? How long to wait before washing like regular/ daily driving? (I work at a site that constantly has dirt and dust in the air due to truck / construction traffic)

Awesome thread, thank you!

I washed them the first week. It's not like a auto paint where it has to be so long.

I put them on after 24hrs and boom drove around with no issues. They can come out glossy or flat depending on how well you apply and then clear coat it.

Thanks i am glad you like it

Looks like the niteshade hasn't been ordered . Massive is out & they don't know when more will they will have more. Looks like it'll have to come from Modern @ twice the price. . Oh well at least it's still avaliable.
