your nightshade job looks ALOT better than the one i did. How do you get the glossy finish with the nighshades? Mine was very flat. I have an extra center piece im keeping stock but im trying to get that gloss look on the one i already tinted.

you gotta clear it to get a glossy finish. you kinda can if you put on a heavyish coat of nightshades, but you run the risk of it lookin like arse. i put down 3 coats on my firebird, but since i was running out at the topcoat, it made it look "sandy" or dull. had to clearcoat that one too. this one wasnt bad, i didnt want a line between the tinted part and the clear, and a shinier finish, so i clear coated it. you gotta be careful if your top half is cleared, that could get cloudy if your not. and you can easily over coat it like i did.
