I have bought the stuff that Raul at Stealth sells and smoked the lenses on my Toyota. It is pricey but with just regular paint it is alot harder to see through.

be sure to clean your lenses first, otherwise it will not adhere very well. Also be sure to apply an even coat, its hard to see without light shining through, but I messed mine up a bit. Hope all goes well!

I haven't found any VHT retailers.... Anyone know of any chain stores that stock it or can order it?

you could also go to any hobby shop and get model tint. it's used to do windows on model airplanes and such so it is made for plastic applications. i had mine done at a shop with the clear coat-paint mix. it looks good. i think the can ones are as good though for less money. mine cost 250 for all the lights, emblems, and side vent mesh.
don't know where to get the nightshade though
