Don't buff them. It'll remove the VHT.

You need to add a couple coats of clearcoat to seal them and match the finish of the car.


Then remove the Jeff Gordon sticker from your rear quarter window, and you'll be all set.

I would really suggest removing the VHT on the reverse lamp area before clearing them.
