    Here's an example that all of you can relate to. These are spray tinted, wet sanded smooth, and then polished just like the car paint:

    The smoke color looks great but the only thing I don't like about VHT is the lamps aren't shiny like the original glass, it's a little dull.

    I want mine shiny like the factory.

    Kris,

    I'm sorry, I don't understand the question.... Are you asking if they were cleared?

    The lenses were based in a black with clear mixed in it and then cleared over. They retain the shine of the factory and you can make it as dark as you like.

    Of course, they cost MUCH more than the 13.00 a can the OP suggested. The VHT tint is a cheaper, more economical way of doing it.

    No I was giving examples of how one could take the VHT and put an extra step in and give it that shine that you were referring to, for 13 a can and a little fabricating know how, I'm sure you could tweak the finished product to look like your smoked.

    Doing a 2 stage job (VHT, then a urithane sealer) I'm sure you could come out with a shiny lens. I have never used this product,but if it is like most spray based paints I would imagine that you could spray then take some lens polish, or toothpaste, and put a shine on the plastic, just like you can do with a bikes wind screen.
