Nightshaded my tails last night.
Came out well. They are a lot darker than they look in these pictures.

I would like to make them glossier. I put about 3 coats of clear coat on last night
after putting a bunch of coats of Night Shades on.
Do I need to put more coats of Clear Coat on for a glossier look?






Here's a more accurate picture of what the tails look like.

Looks good man! Definitely sand them down with some like 2000 grit sand paper and maybe 2-3 more coats of clear. Then after a week of so, pull them out and wax them just like you would the rest of the car.

Thanks OBZ!
Will the 2000 grit show scratch marks?

If thats how you want it, then do it!
Everyone has their own opinion.
