    It didnt take to long, I did it over a day as I was doing other things aswell but it gave a chance for the paint to dry, you will also need to take or loosen the bumper to get the lights off the car.

    i tinted my lights using the very same spray,

    rubbed them down using a scourer
    washed them, and dried
    sprayed the tint across both lights with them sitting side by side, even distance
    let it dry (i used a hairdrier)
    once happy with the tint
    spray couple of coats of laquer

    It was really easy
