    They are dark, but they look good. I did mine a couple weeks ago, and they are a little darker than I was hoping. I think they will lighten up with time.

    yea don't worry about having them too dark, they will fade with time.

    I used Night Shades... About 3 coats, then clear coated them... Lots of wet sanding and buffing... They look pretty decent... Got rolled the first night I had them on!!! The deputy was in an unmarked and he rolls up and badges me! I badged him back and he said have a good night... So I guess they arent that dark after all!! :thumbsup:
