Re: Sypder LED Tails installed (few questions)

I might try the new plastidip smoke if I can find some locally or at a decent shipping rate.

EDIT: Nevermind. Not sold on how the smoke looks. Needs to be more black.

Re: Sypder LED Tails installed (few questions)

if you do the VHT, you can get them to look really great. you just have to be patient though, like I mentioned in the other thread.

Re: Sypder LED Tails installed (few questions)

those are not smoked at all. they led tails with black housings do not come smoked for some reason, i've been looking for a long time. the red and silver ones come smoked but not the black...who knows why.

Re: Sypder LED Tails installed (few questions)

Is it a wet light sand after the vht is on before clear coat or after? Sanding after painting seems counter intuitive to me.

Yes, this is because the clear needs something to stick to and to clean up the imperfections after spraying the vht. And because there is a few coats of vht on the light, lightly sanding doesn't remove much paint.

Re: Sypder LED Tails installed (few questions)

^ this exactly. wet sanding is designed so you're not destroying the layer below it. I actually wet sand my tails with dish soap in order to preserve the paint, then I wash them with alcohol.
