tint your headlights. its illegal and a stupid idea because it cuts down your light output and do you really want less light at night?
go return the metalcast and buy some VHT and get automotive clear coat.
and here is a link for everything you need to know
NO YOU WERE TOLD WRONG!!!
Niteshades takes 3 x's longer than tinting clear coat and requires WAY more sanding
I have did it both ways and the best way is to get about a cup of clear and add a spoonful of black. mix and shoot. i used duplicolor's paintshop brand since its premixed and ready to spray out of the can. It takes lots of coats but you dont want it to heavy. Alot easier to regulate the darkness as well.
Like the others said DO NOT tint your headlight housing. Very dumb IMO
