The problem with all of the extra work is that you won't see the difference.

Without getting into a deep discussion, different colors reflect different amounts of light. White reflects a lot, but black is just the opposite, and absorbs it. You will see the surface reflections great, because the contast of a dark background will make them seem stronger... but the light that bounces back from a black base through the tint and clear, will probably be almost zero. Don't waste your time and materials.
