Also you might try spraying a clear coat spray, with UV protection, immediately after you wipe it with lacquer thinner. Like: http://www.krylon.ca/products/uvresistant-clear-coating/
Excellent observation! Stored in a metal container. Like most solvents. and that why the instructions say to wear gloves and do one quick pass!If you find that too difficult, please take your product and move along. This intractable is for people with basic skills that can follow simple instructions. I am not saying your product is not good but please take it somewhere else.Thank you.
It sounds like your headlights might be too degraded or different plastic. Try another product and see if you have better success.
Im very glad this worked for you,and I am not trying to knock your success at all, but most (paint) solvents are stored in metal containers for a reason. All of the headlight restoring products at any car parts store are stored in plastic containers, WHY? Just a heads up to everyone not to use something that is designed to melt (paint) and remove stain. This will also remove the paint from your car if spilled by mistake, so a cheap headlight fix can turn into a bumper having to be re- painted,where the headlight restoring products won't harm your cars paint. Besides for $2-$3 more bucks you can buy the right product.
Well if you notice that lacquer thinner is stored in a metal container, WHY? Here is one of the reasons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NR2wKgy5EYU Its not meant to be used on plastic, Just a heads up. Go to LenzClear.com I have used this product and its Meant to be used on headlights for oxidation removal..
Well, it's been seven years now since I did the original polishing on my first car headlights. I repeated the process last year to freshen them up. They never became as cloudy as they where when I got the car and they CERTAINLY did not melt off, even after the second treatment. Just follow the instructions... it's not rocket surgery!
UPDATE!!! LenzClear for restoring headlights is still going strong and has been sold from coast to coast, Seeing is believing http://lenzclear.com/videos/
