Nite Shades

Anyone use nite shades? How did it work out? How many layers did you paint on? Has anyone tried it on chrome emblems?

iv had the can for a year now cant work up the nerve to do it lol....iv tried any and everything else, i will go for it this spring....some guys say to sand your light with 1500, and apply light coats until you are happy. then wet sand with 2000 and clear....results from this are very glossy and smooth.....other just spray it on and done.

I use 1500/2000 grit to polish my headlight lens. It should look good..
