I would order two cans of nightshade to be safe. It sucks not having enough to finish the project. I did my side markers this weekend, and then noticed a crack in my aftermarket tails, so I decided to tint my stock tails until I get something new. I got one full coat on and then ran out.


With the tiny cans of duplicolor, I'd say get at least 3-4 cans of the clear, they don't hold much.

Oh yeah...Massive has the nighshade in stock right now, so get your order in.

I did it with one can but I'd buy two to be safe. My tails didnt come out as well as I wanted so I need to buy another can.

Snack, how do you go about doing it with black paint? Just really light coats?

Please please please don't just use black paint. the light wouldn't come through and it could come out uneven. The nice thing about nightshade is that it doesn't show layers. Paint would show the layers that you would put on. Also, if you were going to get complete coverage, you would be blocking out all of the light...and prob get pulled over or rear-ended
