Ok... So here i was at AutoStylin in Niagara Falls the other day and i said yo you crazy F*&K you have VHT (anyone who has ever been in there knows this guy he makes Andrew Dice Clay look like a school boy) anyways he says I aint selling you that **&T it'* garbage he then said something about spray'in his moms well never mind. I have something better for you, I'm thinking better then VHT (he'* saying this cause he has never used it) lol.

So i go over to his computer and he says that there is this guy in Toronto who drops a few drops of Black aint into the clear and air brushes them, Interesting I'm thinking so here are these tails in his email and holy smack there beautiful air brushed, wet sanded and cleared look wow amazing.. So while the GXP is in for paint I think I'm going to try this method. Also have something lined up for the wheels and headlights....

Has anyone seen or herd of this method.???...

and I'm sure BrianJ has been in there and knows this guy.

Peter'* method is the best, but I don't think he airbrushed it. He used an HVLP gun IIRC.

Your foul-mouthed store owner may have his opinions, but VHT does very well for the DIY crowd. Here'* a couple I've done for other members:

Two other sets I've done aren't pictured. Most of these were done in one day or less. EK98'* in about 4 hours.

The paint method is MUCH better, just because of the difficulty that many people have spraying a rattle can evenly and not crating bubbles or runs.

It isnt that VHT is a bad product, it is that if you dont do it right its going to look like $#!T, and with the majority of VHT users being DIYs, the amount of bad tint jobs is going to be quite large

If you have any patience at all VHT is good. Take your time it will be worth it in the end. It looks amazing I did it perfect the first try it wasn't that hard.
