I doubt crappy cell phone pics would show the imperfections im talking about. I did about 3 light coats of vht nightshades and maybe 6 or more layers of clear coat. Yes i buffed/polished but i was using 2000 grit paper and meguiars ultimate compound so it took forever, im guessing these dont cut too deep but its better then it was. I used about 1/4 of a can of vht. 1 can is more then enough.
