I bought VHT nightshade, and some acrylic clear coat.

Start off by wet sanding your tail lights.. Then do very light coats of nightshade waiting 10-15 minutes between coats

Once you've achieved the desired darkness let dry for 4-6 hours then wet sand again

Put on 2-4 coats of clear coat for protection and let dry for 4 hours

Now you can either leave them if they are glossy enough or you can wet sand again, and use polishing compound to buff them after wet sanding to get a more glossy look!

You should be good, mine turned out great and I get compliments all the time. Also I have never had a cop say anything about mine. Hope this helps, PM me if you have any more questions.

Also I used 2000g sandpaper for the wet sanding.

I went pretty dark with mine but you can always do less coats, and if you were wondering you can still see my brake lights during the day and at night the running and brake lights are still really bright
