right

bit late in reply

but here is the rest

use the 1500 to take the shine off your lights

then spray over very very light coats of black

keep doing these till you have your lights as dark as you want (when it goes fully black stop on that coat or the light wont show through)

leave it to dry for a couple of hours and then spray over with laquer (generously but dont let it run)

put as many coats of laquer on as you wish you can never have too much laquer

3-4 coats is best

then use the 1500 wet AND LIGHTLY to flat off the laquer

tcut it and use a good polish to shine it up again Smile

jobs a gud un

also i suggest getting the brighter bulbs (i also hold no responsibility if you get pulled over for the light not being bright enough) HIGLY UNLIKELY that you will though
