Night shade works. No need to sand. no priming.

I'd get a spray can of "wax remover" and spray them and wipe them down real good. then go at it with the tint. Several light coats so you dont over do it.

Dont tint the headlights, if you do, stones will get kicked up and chip it and make it look like shit. Do the housing like the How To and try the other for the tails
