What I did, it'* not as smooth as the paint on the car, and it'* not as glossy, but it'* better than straight VHT. 3 layers of clear or so, and a lot of time machine buffing will smooth it out NICELY.

I could put pix up of both of our cars that show them both glossy or flat.

And in all honestly that picture you posted wasn't buffed, and that was before I got back at them, care to keep trying ? JLAudioEclipse buffed his out to body paint smoothness a few years ago and they were amazing. Looked just like brand new tinted glass/plastic.

There is no difference between the labels. The cans contain the same stuff.

The problems were in application, not material.

The clear may not have been compatible with the base coat (VHT).
