  • VHT-ing your taillights

    so what are the tried and tested methods of applying vht to your taillights and rear reflector ( i have a 93 sl2). how many coats did it end up taking you to get them really black?

              Washed with dawn, sanded lightly and rewashed.
              Let them air dry and sprayed on about 3 thin coats of vht with about a 15min break in between.
              Let it dry an hour then appiled 5 coats of clear to get it real shiny
              Waited about 5 days and then waxed it

              Its stayed flawless thru the heat and the harsh winters up here so I think its good to go.

                              I think it is stickied? It's been posted before. Anyways, I don't like the video. I'm more anal about my painting prep than he is.

                              They shouldn't get that dark in 3 coats! I put about 10 on mine (after redding out the amber) and they turned out like this:




                              Take em to a local body shop and get em professionally clearcoated. One shop quoted me $60...I had a friend working at another shop, I paid him $20 and it was good....the clear is amazing...it looks almost liquid. He told me to wait a month before waxing.
