You could also go to a body shop and have them do it. They will mix black into clearcoat. It will look best but will cost much more than nightshade.

Don't know about you guys in the states, but here in Quebec you can get towed if pulled over with shaded lights. Its a big no-no here.

Your laws are probably adapted off of US laws. the reasons nightshaded lights work are, as shown above, the guy kept the white visible. The red shows through the nightshade(which is obviously see thru).

I'm not sure if you're required to see the plastic red in the taillight, but it seems like it'd be an easy ticket to get out of.

They are pretty strict here on any modification of vehicles lights. I'll have to check if nightshade is considered legal.

Yes, at least I did. It looks way too dull imo if you don't.
