VHT Niteshades cost about $7 a can, Krylon clear coat is about $5. I used one can of each and did my taillights and 3rd brake light. You can always sand it off if you don't like it. I did two coats of Niteshades and 3 coats of clear. Still very visible at night. I still haven't put LEDs in the taillights, which supposdely makes them way brighter.

Vht ftw I love it I use it on everything. I have never used the clear but it should make it better. Mine do fade. I did about 3 coats and they shine great at night. And you can always take it off with a little alcohol and it comes right off
