Default Blacked out brake/3rd brake lights.

Hey guys. I stopped into my local advanced auto and picked up a can of VHT Nite-shades translucent black paint for my rear brake lights and 3rd tail light. Heres some pictures I took during the process. Overall I think they look pretty good but kind of splotchy when the bulbs are lit if you look close. I think I probably put on too thick of a coat the first time. They are installed but it was dark by the time I got them put back on so I will have a finished product pic for you guys hopefully this weekend.










Also check out my recent interior sterio/dash/door/subs/amp/box thread over in interior mods. (http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=74697)

Cool mod. The VHT does work pretty good if done right. You should do a lot of clear, mine actually started to fade a bit after a while. Also waxing it helps out since it is basically paint. It looks really good!

did you put a clear coat on after? If not, you might find the niteshades will fade.

I've done mine, just need to clear coat them with a few coats of clear. For now, while it's freakin cold, nightshades will have to do....

Good job!

Ahh, thanks for the info guys! I think I may do a 3rd coat still to darken them up a little more. I have to wait till the morning to see how they match my tint and black whees/flares and such. I dont want any red shade to them at all (my truck is a white sport running a black/white theme if you didnt already know). I also kinda wanted to maybe...wet sand?...them a little to smooth up the blotches, yay or nay? Will any clear-in-a-can do or do you guys recommend a specific type for the VHT nite-shade?
