    What percentage do you use? I know a lot of these have different percentages.

    Thank you

    Hey there, I've been working with Nightshade the past two nights.

    Is there a percentage? Where is it on the can? Mine is simply 'SP999 Night Shades'

    Re: Question on the Nightshade visor tint.

    I tried the Rit dye and after about two hours all I got was a smoked effect.

    So I turned to this. It massively depends on whether your using lights or not, if not its quite easy to get to a finish (on the inside of the visor) that gives good visibility and is very dark on the outside.

    I'm using lights which will show up unevenness in the paint quite a lot so I've searched on YouTube for tutorials on its proper application. I'm in the middle of sanding the first coat and then applying Clearcoat spray which hopefully should even it out somewhat.

    Contrary to what i said earlier DO NOT SAND IT!

    It has scratched the plastic and made it impossible to see through!

    Doh!
