Vht nite shade

Used this product to smoke out the amber lights on my mirrors and did 3 coats. Wet sanded it was like a mirror. I used duplicolor clear over it and it now looks blotchy. What can I do to fix this. Really don't want to strip them ?

Wet sand them again with 2-3000 grit and then buff them out with a good orbital, clean polishing pad and some compound

That's how mine looked till I put on the clear. I was shocked how great they looked. Ill re do them next weekend. Going to see how well the mirror lights and third tail hold up before doing the brake lights

I've got approx 4-5 coats of clear on mine. The mirror lights get bugs on them, just wet sand lightly and buff. Like new.
Thanks, I'm pretty good with a rattle can. He is the tank on my bike before sand and buff

I did 3 coats on my tail lights and my girlfriends lights as well. Wet sanded before the last coat of nightshades. Followed up by 5 coats of clear. With wet sanding in between coats. Then finally finished up with a good buffing. Will try to get som pictures uploaded.

Now that my clear coat has dried its much better but not nearly as nice when it was just the nite shade. How did the wet sanding between clear coats go? Maybe ill give that a shot

Wet sanding will make the clear look dull and hazy, but once you spray another coat it will appear clear and shiny again. After the last coat, wet sand again them buff to get the mirror like finish.
