            A:

            Hi Kelly! We strive to have all of the information available to our customers when shopping on our website. There are times when the manufacturer does not provide all of the information a customer may require. In this case, even VHT paint does not have the area coverage information listed. However, I think you will need approximately 2-3 cans for your project. I would suggest that you contact the manufacturer directly and they would be in a better position to help you.

          • A:

            It's a minor offense so the cops have to pull you over for something other than your tail lights being to dark to give you a ticket for them.

            A:

            You most likely can, but I do not recommend it for safety concerns. You may also want to check into your state and local laws to see if there are any laws prohibiting the use of this product on headlights.
