Looks good. I finally decided to do a light smoke on my tails. But I'll be going with vinyl so It'll be easy to remove if I ever need to

Keep applying coats until you think its too dark. Then start wet sanding it with 1000 grit until its the darkness you want. How dark its going to be after each coat is going to depend alot on how thick your coats are and the prep work you do in between coats. You cant really base the darkness just off the number of coats put down. I have 3 on mine but they are as dark as mitch's. Apply your clear, wetsand it smooth with 2000 grit and polish/wax.

Between the first and second picture, it is the same paint, just one's inside and ones outside. And yes, that is will two coats of niteshade, and 3-4 of clear.
