i ordered mine from carquest, they had to special order it for me, and i got 2 cans. i only used about 3/4 of a can for all 4 peices.

i did 3 layers of tint, and 3 layers of clearcoat

Someone that has never painted berfore in their life with a spray can of clear coat in their garage < Professional painter at a bodyshop with a paint gun in a paint booth with an oven.

You may be able to get it to look good but the quality will never be the same.

Ryan paid $20 to have them clear coated at a bodyshop. You will pay around $10 if not more for a can of clear and then you have to do it yourself.
