    So I was planning on smoking my tail lights today, so I went out to my local Advanced Autoparts, Oreillys, NAPA, and AutoZone and NOBODY has Nite Shades. And whats worse nobody has heard of the stuff. I dont want to order it online bc shipping way to much for a can of spraypaint. So is there any alternative to NiteShades that i can use to tint my tails????

    I was able to find a suitable replacement paint at a hobby shop, its called "smoke" or something , its used on model cars and did exactly what I expected, you might want to throw a coat of clear on top of it, but its the same thing. I paid $14 for two cans.. they aren't as big as regular cans of paint but they did the job. I used these on my miata.. not the truck yet
