Nothing wrong with admitting fault Sarah. When I did my door last month, I fubar'd the CC.

Question is, are you able to use thinner to remove it and start over? I have never used VHT before.

How long has it been on there? In my experiences with three vehicles with tails and headlights tinted on one of them the VHT faded within about 12 - 18 months. All were clear coated and looked amazing, now they still look ok, but not nearly as dark as they did. Maybe a different clear would work for me if yours has been on a while and still hasn't faded...

I used about 6 coats of automotive clear coat.
