Depends on how dark you want it = to how many coats. But since I live out here in Cali they will pull you over for having them to dark so I did about 2 coats. If you do your headlights don't do them to dark I heard stories that people couldn't find bright enough lights to go through the shade.

Ya you should be fine, if you need it darker apply another coat and also yous a clear coat so it dont fade out. Just remember not to dark are your stock headlights wont be bright enough.
