Default Tailight blackouts...

I'm doing a little project w/ a spare set ... Question is, can I only buy VHT nightshade stuff from summit, like willwren posted in Techinfo? What about Krylon Acrylic Satin Clearcoat? I just got home from work and I'm too lazy to go up to ricerzone and look to see if they have it...

Take them to a shop to get them clear coated. They will charge you +/- $20 and they will look and last x 10'* better.
