this was my first attempt at doing this, so i was expecting a catastrophic failure, but I'm pleasantly surprised at how well they came out, and my patience to do it right. To tint it, since i couldnt find VHT's nightshades locally, i used some window tint paint from my local hobby shop, that is also specially made for plastics [specifically, lexan, but it's okay] I then hit it with tons of coats of dupli-color clear top coat. here are a couple pics: after clear coat, i wetsanded it really well to get rid of any orangepeel, first iwth 1000 grit, then again with 1500 grit. I tehn used some rubbing compound to even it out, then some polish. finally, i used some meguiar's PlastX plastic compound.polish to get that final mirror finish. The coat hasnt cured yet, so i havent waxed it. i still have to go over it a few more times with the plastX to get more shine, as there are still some very fine scratches form teh polish and compound. To speed it up, i have mothers' polish ball for my drill. works wonders. couple more pics: and no flash: when i put 'em on later today, i'll get some pics of how much they cut down the brake lights -- i tested them earlier and the brakes are still very bright.
