Cant wait to see them done. As long as they are just dark enough to give the reverse light a smoked color I think they will look good. Any darker and I don't like them.

I say do the reverse light, it'll look better and if you are only doing it really light I doubt it'll affect it much.

This is with NO sanding at all. You do NOT have to sand them. Hope this helps in your decision on doing the rev or not Cody.

I vote not lol

Regular black spray paint will not work. Night-Shade is completely different. It is a translucent paint.

yeah black paint will not be a good turnout... I thought about going all stealthy and painting the reflectors black then nite-shade on top, but that is kinda illegal...

I think a light coat of nite-shade would look good, as mentioned before, it only looks good on certain trucks... yours would look good with the silver.. That shade on the mustang would be perfect on your truck.

If you are using clear in a spray can make sure you put heavy coats on. Otherwise you will get dry spray.

Mike what clear coat did you use? I can't get mine to shine up too well, its giving me a pretty heavy matte finish even with 1 coat of clear
