3. spray on 3-4 light coats of the vht nightshade
4. let dry for 2-3 hours just in case
5. put back in truck
in my experience, light coats lay on dull and matte.
I do two thick coats, or one thick coat. Runs become an issue but if you mess up you can quickly remove the VHT you sprayed with windex and a towel if you catch it quick enough. They lay much glossier if you do thick coats. I've painted 10+ sets with thick coats, all look A1, and 20+ in thin coats, I'd say 1 in 5 come out well. That may just be me.
