I used it with good results in the past, clear coat is a necessity.

Re: vht nightshade
what kind of clear coat did you put? is it worth it to take it to get professionally clear coated?

Re: vht nightshade
Honestly I forget exactly what I used. I know it was a clear made for plastics. And yeah if you can afford it get it done professionally. The vht will not make the long run. Expect a year or 2 out of it. That was my experience at least. Then I had to redo it.

Please dont use that garbage.

Get a set of LED tails and a spare 3rd brake light, send it out to our vendor UR50SLO ( and get them professionally done like I did!

Mine look great!

Re: vht nightshade
I did mine with it, came out good. Clearcoat is definitely a necessity. Also ended up doing my front reflectors with it also, masked off my side marker lights, then painted them same color as the Jeep,kinda like Stillen covers. Overall, I'd say it depends on your capabilities and patience. If you're not sure about it, definitely get them done professionally. 10-06-2011 09:24 AM

Re: vht nightshade
did it myself and it worked very well and it was not hard at all, just look up the youtube videos and follow the directions and you won't have a problem
