Some of us don't have the means to mix clear with black for tinted tails. We use the VHT Nite Shades.

looking good, its been sooo humid recently there no way to nightshade anything here...you can get lacquer thinner and the nightshade scrubs off, no need to get new lights, ive done mine 3-4 times . . . to get it right though you have to spray the nightshade in such thin coats, im talking like 8 or so to get the tails black...

yeah, where abouts? I'll get Justin to come too...the best trick for the reverse tails....(did it to mine and Justins) is to tape the whole light face up, take the bulb out, we then took my trouble light and shined light up through the face, it goes through the tape(masking) and you can see the difference in the coloration, from there use a razor blade to cut the undesired tape off...and also, take those things out next time, your coats will be so much nicer...
