chris ... the spraying technick is not god ... you have to give a wet spray at the last coat to give a mirror shiny efect,,,if you just mist it with small jets you have to sand it and polish it at the end

I like Chris; I've learned a lot from him, but the brake lens didn't look all that good, in my opinion. I could see orange peel in the clear coat. This is why you dont paint outside, you need to be within a certain temperature when painting. If the part you are painting is too cold, then it will most definitely cause orange peel....you can also get small debris and bugs stuck in the wet paint. The most common cause of orange peel is painting a cold part.

I did this last year but I did it on my Dog lights which are clear and they didn't hold up unfortunately. They're Dull again. I guess nothing lasts longer than 1-2 years besides getting brand new. This Clear UV safe non yellowing is no better than the standard Clear imo

I think fixing headlights is better than taillights unless a lot of the light is blocked.

Its bad to paint in direct sun, always paint in shades. And light coats make ´´orange skin´´ on everything you paint - you can see it here too. Use thicker coat which can form to even level. Too thin coat - orange skin, too thick coat - paint run. Thats why painting needs practice.

Thanks for the info. I used this method for my reverse lights that are in the tailgate of my 92 4Runner. I was so happy with the results I did my taillights, front turn signals and corner lights. After that I've been wanting to fix the faded and oxidized paint/clear coat. I was hoping you had a video on that but unfortunately you don't or not that I've found. So might be an idea for a future video?

Halogen bulbs must not be touched because of the high temperature they run at. I have never heard of this being a problem with tungsten bulb. Technically I should say lamp, not bulb. Bulbs flower in the spring.

Your warning about not touching the bulbs in your brake light with your fingers would only apply if they were halogen bulbs. If they were halogens then the lens you're painting wouldn't be plastic.

another awesome video, we used your technique on our PT cruiser headlights and they still look great after a few years. Thanks so much for the tips and tricks. The polishes are a waste of money compared to this. Some of them run upwards of $50 when brand NOS headlights are about $75 a pair. But some sand paper and paint is a few bucks and actually less work than removing the headlights from a PT cruiser in my opinion.
