x2. The clear lens makes a HUGE difference. Our lenses have the checkered non-clear pattern

All I'm sayin' is you don't need to sand or use UV clear coat. I didn't and no fading at all. No problems at all.

Congrats. You spent an extra hour spraying your lenses. VHT hasn't faded on me at all. 6 months and no problems. 5 months on my buddies truck and no problems.

understandable. There are a few fingerprints on the edges of my tails. Unnoticeable if I don't point them out. Yea I almost dropped them when I moved them.
