I assume you are going for the tinted look and not all-red like mine. I beleive Testors does make a translucent black and not the opaque black like what you have. The can should specify whether of not it is the see through type of paint. If not, just ask a salesperson at the hobby shop.
I would keep the clear though, as the Testors will fade over time without it.

Re: Where do I buy tint spray (rabbitmania)

Okay, I'm going to take this black back to the store tomorrow. Is there any place online to order? Getting sick of driving around. I've probably paid for shipping three times in gas.

Hmm, not quite. You need to ask for the translucent black. It's actually labelled as model window tint, for tinting the glass on model cars.
Also use lots of automotive clearcoat for a tough finish.

I don't know where you can but it in USA, but you get them pre-made from most german tuner companies. Or you make them your self. Just buy the alu floor mats from your local metall pusher.

the light transfers very well. my tails are dark, but i wanted them that way. put it on as thin as you want. my front repeaters are dark, but you'd never know they were tinted when the lights are on.

Yeah, Luke's A3 tails are DARK. Like, during the day if he puts his drivng lights on you can't see em
But he did a damn good job. Proof that you can do a good job if you take your time...
