After you spray them let them cure and get a spray bottle with water and start with 1500 or 2500 grit wet depending on how rough and sand until when you rise the taillight and spray it the water sits flat on the surface and doesn’t sheet water this means you’ve reached a point to where the surface is flat after that use 3000 grit wet once you got all the heavy scratches out from the heavy sanding dry and use a compound by hand or machine I buff cars on the side so I used my machine

Looks good!

I just picked up a 05 G6 GT to drive thru the winter so I can store my G8. The tail lights were poorly tinted so I removed the tint. Lacquer thinner and some good old fashioned elbow grease and they came out looking like new. After removing with thinner, I cleaned them up good and used some Mequires compound and polish.

Just a fyi in case you decide to go back to stock. You probably already knew that but I was just throwing it out there. Enclosed are some pics...

I think they used the VHT spray. It was so bad that there were huge runs in it. It looked terrible.

Yours came out looking great!
