Blacked out taillight
 
Hey guys I just used some of that VHT for my third brake light. I like it looks pretty good. It took about 5 hours with most of it sit time, letting it all dry. I still have to wet sand it and polish it so it might come out a little better. I did 3 light coats of VHT and then 3 coats of clearcoat. I'm going to do my tailights after I get my lightbar installed under the tailgate. You can actually see the light come through really well.

Heres the pics

Hey that looks great. It is surprising isnt it. I did all my lights even the heads. Funny thing the opther day at Timhortons. I pulled up and a cop was trying to get out. I flashed him a couple times and proceeded and waved. How does that sound. Cool EH!:smileup:

yea I like how this VHT stuff looks. I have to polish it up but i think it still looks good now

haha nice work with the cops. i am kinda worried about them with the black taillights. Thats why I'm waiting for my light bar to come in. At least I'll have that too for brake lights. Added light I guess

You will be surprised. I did mine two coats. Let them dry and tried the brake light. IE wedged my scraper/brush into the seat and pedal to see what it would look like. Great. Not alot of difference at all.:smileup:Canuckboy did his as well. Hes surprised as well.:smileup:

Looks great . Nice job .

Looks great Skat! It'll look good on the tail lights too when you get it done. Any plans to modding the taillights to get a more distinctive look? Maybe Halos? I know AAC has a kit.

Came out great but I'm wondering what you mean by polishing? Is that like wetsanding? Do you need to clear coat them afterwards for it to last or not?

:rep:

I never sanded mine at all. So far this winter all the lights i did seem to be holding up fine. Even if theres a few spots at 18 bucks a can its not hard to do and cheap. Looks great and the product is great as well. Cant say that about everything you buy nowadays.:smileup:
