Exclamation oops...niteshades..Q?

i put on niteshades like 2 months ago and it turned out pre good

now i got another can last night to make them completley black

i was in kind of a hurry to do them cuz i had 3 essays due the next day for school so i made the dumb*ss mistake of just putting on heavy coats

i ran out of clear coat and the tail lights are like wavy (not bubbling)

how can i fix this????? sand it down a little???

07 ls coupe, 5spd...20% tint in back, 35% tint driver and passenger..magnaflow..blacken bowties..chrome wheels...debaged....tinted head lights..niteshades tail lights..Ozzy

You are going to have to sand them down pretty good to get rid of the runs. I'd suggest some 400 grit and go to town until its smooth. then repaint.

Modding tip: NEVER mod when in a hurry!
