Sup guys, Im on my 2nd srt of candy tails soon to be automotive cleared :drool: . I have about 5-6 cans of paint on em right now. I've been wetsanding to get em nice and smooth. After I wash em, and they dry I can see hmmmm looks like dots my friend said from wetsanding. When I have water on them they look nice, deep red and smooth. Should I lay down a coat, or can I clear over the wetsanded tail lights? Thanx!

I wetsanded mine to smooth them out. I used 600 wet and then cleared over them. They'll look all scratched up and stuff when dry, but how they look wet is how they will look cleared. Once i cleared they looked sweet :) I'm about to do my second set as well.

Hope this helps!
