You probably have it's actually really good paint I think. All I did was scratch up the lenses with a brillo pad and thats 2 light coats of spray

Krylon isn't really supposed to be a transparent paint though is it? Can you take a picture of your brake lights in sunlight?

VHT Niteshade. I bought mine at Summit. I still haven't sprayed it yet though..

Have you tried your local auto parts stores??? Advance, Auto Zone, Etc.. Our local stores just recently started carryin VHT Nite Shades within the last yr or so. My tails and 3rd brake light are coated with nite shades and I've been very happy with it.

I have done all my lights with niteshades even blacked out the reflectors on the headlights of the d-max. used a few coats of niteshades and then two or three coats of clear. Been like that for over a year now and no peeling or fading.

If you use it make sure you spray a couple coats of clear on too or it will look trashy. IMO it looks retarded if you tint your headlights.

Here's a pic of all my tail lights tinted lightly and clear.

That actually looks pretty good Ross......

but you should spend less money on paint, and more on performance parts, after all you did get smoked a month ago by a certain fummins:D

Chris who let you on this site. For your information the paint was free and I would spend more money on go fast goodies but my truck isn't paid off yet. Don't worry if you didn't have the gears you had in that truck you wouldn't have beaten me. O next time lets go after 80 MPH I bet you won't catch me then:D

I just bought mine at wal-mart and did it. It looks sweet, but when the lights are on you can tell it isn't the real deal. But works for me I already have someone that wants me to show them how to do it.
