I've also noticed this lens tint dries in an almost glass like to the touch finish. I'm planning on painting my trim, molding, cadding, whatever anyone wants to call it. The gray part on my car on the outside, but anyways I'm planning on using this lens tinting stuff to paint it and my grille because of the finish it dries to. Also it'll make it black after 3 coats so it'll take a few cans but if it comes out with the same finish as it has on the headlights, it should come out really good. I'll start out by testing it on something, possibly the grille, but that'll give me an idea of how it'll come out.
