    Lacquering Headlight inserts?

    Evening all

    Been Spraying my inserts on my astras headlights tonight, 4 coats of primer, 4 coats of gloss black

    I was wondering if I should lacquer the inserts or not? I'd like a gloss finish, so I guess this is going to be my only way

    Anyone shed any light on this? ( no pun intended )

    If you've used Gloss black, it will already be gloss.

    It should be.

    Maybe they were sprayed in the damp/cold?
