    Default Blacked out tail lights

    I use VHT nightshade. I wet sand with 2000 grit sand paper first then used a degreaser to take anything left on there. Next was 4 coats of the VHT and then 3 coats of clears coats followed by a final light wet sand then waxed and buffed it out. I think it turned out pretty good.

    Looks good. Can they be seen at 500' when lit? I ask because that's usually the distance required for street legality.
