I'd say 2 more coats and you would be good.

Ill have to wait for the weekend if I wanted to add more coats. I don't think I'm going to just because I don't want it completely murdered out. I was going for a medium like tint.

How dark are you going? The fogs on the mustang on the first page look good.

I dont recommend just spraying the tint and clear. It will not last, and up close looks like crap. You really need to wet sand and polish the proper way to get a nice shine.

Just my .02

I went 3 coats of VHT and I think it came out well. Not too dark and not too light.

Like rocky said, wet sanding and polishing made it pop. Crucial steps !

Did you tape the reverse lights off from the outside?
