    Hey guys, I did my tail lights yesturday. Tinted them and used the dyi on here. They look great but there dull looking. How do I make them shiny? I used rubbing compound and then used a good wax to seal the job and also used clear coat and there still dull flat looking. What can I do to make them shiny gloss looking. Thanks guys. Maybe a better running compound? Idk
