I used VHT nightshade I like it and if you do it carefully you wont get any cracks. also put the rattle can in hot water helps in it shooting easier and I also shot it with clear. The best would be to have a shop do it with a tinted clear coat

i will eventually. i have a HID conversion kit that i'm about to put in. then i want to try and color match my headlights black, and then do one light coat of niteshade . i think it would look good and still get tons of light out..

You can also take them to a paint shop and have them tint a clear coat to your desired darkness.
