    Yep I have used it before...
    Tinted the center section of my tail lights on my old Passat.
    (They use to be ORANGE then they turned BLACK)

    Only picture i had left sorry.

    its easy to use.. Prep and spray then clear... you can wet sand if you really want it to shine!

    if you use it on tail lights remember when you put bulbs back in they no longer allow light in and makes it A LOT darker!!

    start slow you can always add another coat!

    Used it on my Explorer taillights. Came out pretty good. Use light coats until you achieve the shade you're looking for. Then clear coat and wet sand. I would not use it on the headlights, though.

    I'd use Lamin-X. It's a protective film so it wont chip, and if you need to remove it it will be easier than something you painted on.

    Best pic I have of Nite-Shades tails - I didn't go as dark as some so I could retain some "red" for my local law enforcement :D

    If you can use a can of spray paint.. then no...

    Its easy just take your time! (Laquer Thiner is your friend if you make a mistake! At least i think it would work?)
