Took them off, of course, wet sanded them with 2000 grit until they were nice as scuffed up then washed them off with soap and water, then just hit them with 4-5 coats of VHT nite-shades, waiting 10 minutes in between coats. Once that dried I wet sanded again with 2000 grit until al defects were out, washed them off and put 5 coats of clear on them. Once that dried, I wet sanded the clear coat with 2000 grit then buffed them with Meguiar's Ultimate Compound.
