    I don't know about the black paint. Night shade is supposed to be more transparent when the lights light up.

    any black paint wont work i used vht and that works but the black out tail light paint has a percentage of clear coat in it to dilute it or some thing my painter buddy was telling me. at least when you use a compressor and sprayer thats how it works from what he says

    Thats not what my taillights say, also its not regular paint, its the same black thats on my truck and its really thick.

    They are just as bright as regular stock ones.

    ill let them speak for themself.

    Automotive pain before this i used rattle can spray and were lighter.

    Looks good 2tone! Before it wasnt high priority on my list but now i want to black out my tails! I may go ahead and give the black spray paint a try. Will they be somewhat shiny with clear coat?
