Night Shade Paint?

I have had my taillights tinted to 20% for about a years now and its lightened up alot and doesn't look good like it used too. Tinting them was a pain and can leave creases and not look clean and smooth. Has anyone used the night shade paint and would they recommend it? I would like to here the pros and cons to it.

Have you used it before or have a pic of a car that it has been used on?

I used it on my side marker lights. In my opinion, it's a little hard to use. Then again, I'm not good at using a regular tip on a spray can. Otherwise, it looks good. Wish it had a tip like the Krylon Fusion spray paint does.

I got mine at O'Reilly. They have it at Summit too. I tried Auto Zone and Advance Auto Parts around here and neither had it. I saw the clear coat for them at Summit but nowhere else.

works great, fades after a lil while(like a year or so), but u can just spray them again. make sure u use a clear coat, no specific one is needed though. put on as many coats as u like till its dark enough, then two coats of clear and ur set. make sure the lights are VERY clean(rubbing alcohol works great), and ur spraying in an area w/ no wind and preferably not much dust.
