    I was wondering if this spray will work as a clear coat for taillights.? I'm doin a pair of taillights and ran out of the other can I used for another pair. I don't live in a huge town so I can't run to the store and get some.

    I cant see the picture cuz the work computer, what brand is it Krylon? I mean a number of clears will work, preferably one for plastics but a general clear gloss will work.

    Are you tinting them? Just make sure you don't mix lacquer paint with enamel clear or vice versa. It'll look all wrinkle-y.

    Yeah. They didn't turn out glossy at all. They came out flat.

    Try Duplicolor! That's what I used on my badges and my wheels. Looks great. Make sure with clear coat you lay it on really thick, it needs to be wet to dry shiny. Also try polishing it and waxing it.
