Hi Salbin, do you have any updates on the VHT Nite Shade and clear coat you applied to your Beat's tail lights? Would appreciate if you could let us know how it's holding up after all these years. Also, in hindsight, is there anything you would have done differently? Thanks, and looking forward to hearing from you...

VHT is still looking good. That's only because I had applied clear coat over it. She will be 5 years in a couple of week and the VHT around 3+ years.
Other mods are:
1. Smoked headlamps with HID projectors. DRLs shifted to the angel eyes. I have retained the old DRL with a selector switch.
2. Auxiliary reverse light (LED), placed near number plate illumination lights. The LED light beam will not blind the other drivers coming behind.
3. Enabled outside temperature and distance to empty (DTE) and other trip related displays in the instrument console
Here are some pics:

Thanks, appreciate the quick response. I won't be using the VHT on a Beat, but I must say -- your mods make for one sweet ride! Happy motoring
