Yep you'll need clear coat. TO really make them pop I would polish the lens real well first.

You could always go to the jy and pick up any tail light from any car..just for practice. It don't have to be for a LeSabre, just anything that you can try it on, so if you screw up, you won't be without tails for your car.

Im following this guys explanation, he did an excellent job and made it look so much easier than what i've read. I learn better by being shown rather than reading. Can't wait to start this.
