ok so here's what I got so far...I cleaned them with wax/grease remover. scuffed them up with soapy water and a grey scuff pad (approx 800 grit). cleaned them again. applied 3 light coats of VHT Nightshades. I am now letting them dry over night. Here's what they look like right now. I still need to wet sand, buff and polish. Oh and for some reason the camera flash makes them look lighter.....they are in fact a bit darker in person.
