I'm on tapatalk right now, so the pic is a little disstorted.. so it looks like they have the orange peel effect or a lil dull, is what I meant about cleaning them up...

But will look sexy against that silver

5 coats of vht and 3 coats clear.

Add about 6-7 more coats of clear, then wet sand with 2000 grit and buff with polishing compound then wax. You can make them as smooth as glass.

sand 2000 grit between each coat :yes: That is what I did and they are smooth as glass like you say and very glossy! Then a nice wax after and your good to go

They look good, Just a bit dark for my taste. I would recommend some LED's on those since there so dark

like these lol

Well the silver part I painted comes apart from the light. That's how I painted them. I then vht the actual light housing with vht. Its a whole tail assembly that just comes apart. Not really a cover I guess.....sorry for the confusion.
