Did you spray it in the same shop I went to? If so, it's amazing what kind of paint jobs can come out of a simple garage!
Be sure to get some pics when you put it back together.
BTW, what headlights? Stock, clear, or smoke?
Also, what color pearls did you use? And, did you mix it into the clear or into a binder?
One more: How long can you let the base coat sit before you clear it? I noticed you had yours base'd before you laid the flames...how long can you let it sit? Do you have to scuff it, or will it still adhere with the clear? The longest I've ever let it sit was a simple 15min for a flash...
THe only flames I've done were over the clear, after scuffing it.
