    i just used 3 coats of clear primer afterwards, but really for the best you could treat it as any other paint, polish etc...

    Can't remember how many coats lacquer i did. Either 2 or 3. No more than 3 as i didn't know if it'd reduce the light output

    Looked shiney enough to me. If not up to scratch then try polishing it?
