Here are some shots of my truck, I have two coats of Nightshades on there. That was with one can, and there was still some left over.

just make sure when you do this, you do super thin coats.

it runs really easy if you put it on to thick and it gets really dark.

You don't need the clear coat, I just bought it to make the lenses look a little more glossy. If you wanted to do it, you can use the smallest can they've got. The thin coats are a good tip.

I dont even remember how many coats I put on my tails, but they turned out pretty dark and I would definately suggest hititng it with clear and wet sanding with 1000-2000 grit paper so it looks nice and glossy
