I have used it and they can come out nice or they can come out like garbage. Depends on how much time you have but I would just take them to a body shop and have them spray them for you. Thats what I did for my last set.
If you are stuck on doing them yourself then take them off and lightly sand them with 1200 grit sandpaper, clean with rubbing alcohol, do 2-4 lite coats of VHT depending on how dark you want, then wet sand them with 1500 grit sandpaper and finally get some scratch x polish and buff them out and after all those steps they should be a mirror finish.
Apply the coats after the initial sanding. Apply the coats one after another. No work is needed between the coats unless you have a major screw up like a run or a piece of garbage that lands on it (then you might need to wet sand). And after the clear coat you can wet send and polish.
