Sounds like you either sprayed too close to the light or put on your first coat to thick.

I held the can about 10 inches away like it said but when I srap its not like when you spray paint. its real heavy and doesnt spray good it was hard to do a light coat with it.

The thing is spraying like 2 straight jets out of it. Theres no way to get an even coat off to town I guess.

Your truck is too nice to be jacking up your tails, get them professionally done. That's what I did, or at least bought them professionally painted.

I had mine done at a body shop, looks a 100 times better than vht, unless u are big tundra, because that guy is pretty good. I would have sent him mine but after shipping to and from New York, it would have cost the same, but my lights were done in one day. They used clear with 5% black added with 3 coats,
