it looks a lot better in person but its still not shiny or anything like in the picture above on the cyclone gray...THAT LOOKS AWESOME!

hopefully ill find something that will make mine shiny like that? any suggestions on what to do or brand to use??

wetsand it with 2000 grit sand paper. then get your entire car buffed and ask them to buff the lights as well. you got plenty of clear coat on. all i put was 3 coats and that was enough even with the sanding and buffing.

So I need to buff my whole entire car too? What about if I just took a buffing tool to the taillights and then applied more clear coat?
