Default How long to dry

Hey guys I was wondering how long you should let you tail lights and reflector sit after you put VHT on it. I just got my bottles in today and was thinking about doing it now if I can put them on later tonight

Also for tinting the tails. I know I have to mask off what I don't want tinted and then I start applying the VHT on it, but after every coat do I sand it down at all???

Can someone give me a step by step on how to properly do it?

there are different techniques throughout the club, some will tell you things, others will tell you different things.

I did 3 coats of VHT, with 30 minutes between coats, and then 3 coats of clear, with 30 minutes between coats, with no sanding

willwren and others will tell you to sand and what not, but I don't really see the need.
