tinted my tail lights...question bout 3rd brake light?

after seeing THExBUSxDRIVER's write-up i knew i had to do this...well finally got some time off today and it came out pretty good i guess. not as clear as his but i followed the directions word for word. only did TWO shades and they seem wayy darker than his also. but im happy with the results overall.



i did the 3rd break light as well. twice. first time it turned out like shit. so i sanded all the Nightshade off and got it down smooth as glass and shot it again. still turned out like crap . can anyone tell me whats wrong? its got like a spider-web look to it, idk else how to explain it but see for yourself.



if anyone can help id greatly appreciate it!

Too light and it will be rough and matte looking. Just make 2 passes and let it dry until the next coat.

*update* finally went back and fixed some stuff. got rid of the "spider webs" on my 3rd brake light by using Viet's advise, and re did my tails as well. they were too dark for my taste and had some bad imperfections in the clear coat. ignore the water it started raining on me while taking pics

note that using a good degreaser and cleaning really well and drying helps, but slim chance that over spraying was the cause, now take a polisher and shine those bitches up with buffer.> looks good over all.
