Today I decided to VHT my tails. I went with 3 coats of VHT and 3 coats of clearcoat. They aren't as dark as I want but, I don't want to run the risk of getting pulled over for something as stupid as dark tail lights. I'm going to let them sit overnight so I can polish them up good. Tell me what you guys think so far.

Hard to tell, the picture is in shadows. I probably would've done another coat from what I can tell. I'm sure after polishing they'll look great.

Id say it came out pretty good for spray. I wouldn't go any darker than that either looks fine just like that. Hit it with some 2000 grit wet sand paper nd buff them out. Should look really clean after

Id personally do it darker, almost the same color as your windows, I did 5 coats on an extra set of tails just to see and I think it came out good, you can see the running lights and brake lights very well.

I did it on my car when I had it and it lasted for the year I had it just fine. If you don't put clear coat over the VHT, that's when it gets dull after a few months.

I'm not much a fan of vht anymore but I do like yours from what I can tell from the pic.

Anyone recommend a certain polish that I can buff them with?
