It really effects the lighting quality. I had a friend do it with big "SS" on them. He still took it off because of lighting quality..

I think one light coat will look good. The SS's lights are SLIGHTLY tinted.

with the nightshade on the headlights i was thinking 1 coat if it looks bad i can take it right off... as far as the tails go do i have to scuff them first or just spray and go?
