Check this out. You have to scrolll down a little, but check out the Nighshades. It looks like they're out of stock right now, but you may call them to see if they have an alternative.

Hope that helps.

BTW you will still need some clearcoat. It comes out a little flat.

Can you use the nightshades paint and spray the inside of the light. I have seen it done on an older f150 and it looks good but it does not have that dark blackout look but it does make the red realy dark. Jason

I don't think so. I always used it on the outside. It does make the red really dark with just a few coats. If you lay on 10 or 12 coats it gets pretty dark.

I just remembered, the first time I got it I think I just Googled "nightshades" to find it.
