Only thing about spraying tailights is that it has a dull look. nless you clearcoat it.

I did a lot of very light coats, started getting heavier at the end. Basically mine are black when there'* no direct light on them, and i used 1 can on 4 lights. Take them outta the car, and take your time.

Order 2 cans just incase. When light hits mine from the sides for example, it'* kinda maroonish on that side. They still light up good though.
