i've used it on my motorcycle. looks great. do very light coats because it gets dark in a hurry and may be too dark if you dont watch it.

Easy to use. My lights are better at night then before. Because my lens were foggy from oxidation or whatever its called. They were beat. I wanted new lights. Not in the budget just yet. So I spent $21.oo for one can of lens tint + one can of acrylic high gloss. Just spray enough tint to cover the lens evenly. The clear was tough. Even enough coat without running. I waited 30 minutes between coats. So it took 2 1/2 hours from start to finish. I sat around enjoying the weather while it was drying between coats.

Thank you Phillip. I like the way it looks when the sun is really shining. Also, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to see at night but I only have Sylvania SilverStar headlight bulbs and its so perfect. On a cloudy day my headlights are black. And I was afraid of the tint spray going on even but it dried perfect. I recommend Tint Spray. One coat is plenty. Someone told me do 3 coats. Whew.. no way. (maybe they meant 3 Acrylic Clear Coats followed by carefully wet sanding them) LOL.

Did my tail lights yesterday. They're not as dark under direct sunlight in a pic. But in person, they're dark.
