    Did you wet sand? I would recommend wet sanding them with a very fine grit to get the smooth look. That what I did and it looks great!

    I've heard of this happening, though it was through a friend and I didn't confirm it.

    I know of someone who was rear ended with tinted tails and the accident was found to be their fault.
