Tinted Tail lights

I just got finished tinting my tail lights with VHT Night Shades. I think they turned out well but I do wish that had more of a shine to them.

Thanks,
Bomhauer

Re: Tinted Tail lights

Did you put a clear coat over it? If so get 3000 grit sand paper and wet-sand it and then polish it.

Re: Tinted Tail lights

Yes I did use a clear coat (3 coats) then wet sanded them with 2000 grit. Maybe i should do that step over again and hope with better results. Thanks for the info.
