wet sand! alot of coats (take your time with alot of light coats, otherwise it will run and look no good. hold can about 6 inchs away and always keep the can moving side to side, easiest just to remove taillights too) and then finish out with a fine polish. wont be shinny like the plastic tail light covers that velcro on but will look good like the tail lights on turbo7.3's truck above^

I would think 2 cans should do it

It probably wouldnt hurt to put a few coats of clear coat on them too
