looks good, but now how well will the finish hold up? Do you have to keep polishng/waxing it every so often?

As for how it will hold up, I'm sure it will last since the wax helps seal it but if anything turns up I'll be sure to let you guys know.

yea just 3 coats gave me this tint, but I think it will vary on how far you hold the can from the lights.

And no, no problems from the fuzz here in Cali. I've even had a couple sheriff's and PD behind me and nothing.

The VHT should be able to be found at most auto parts stores, here in cali i had to do some searching and I found it at a specialty shop called Above & Beyond.

Have Fun!

I've got a few chips and whatnot, but nothing noticeable. Mine were too dark and still are, I think. Oh well.
