the third brake light was a clear chrome LED light originally, then i put a few coats on it just cuz

but now i redid it with two more coats, and then a few coats of clear
the tails have about SIX light coats of VHT nightshades, and three coats of clear. i knew i could go darker on these and still not have any problems with the lights being seen in the day light. i couldnt be happier with them

Looks sweet, I just ordered up some 06 tails The niteshade looks really good with your truck, flows good with the color.

yeah im in the same boat
just got back from college on friday, so im strugglin a bit right now lol
and yeah, its definitely worth the effort to clear them, but if you have access to a spray gun, i suggest it. rattle can clear never looks as good. it all depends on the nozzle too. and the nozzle this clear had wasnt too great..

Sorry I don't like it at all. With the brake lights on, they barely even look like tail lights on.
