dude if you read the can it has instrucions. DONT sand them, and one coat won't be enough unless you do it very heavy, then you risk dripping. have you also tried SEARCHING? a lot of your questions have been asked and answered already

i don't care to see the video, i know which one you mean. i followed the instructions exactly to the "T" and ended up with shitty looking tail lights that you could see the scratches on.

That niteshade crap sucks. you have to wetsand with a 2000 grit after you do it if you do it dark and want shine. So go to a local paint shop they can do it for like 50 with real paint but comes out nice.
