    How to fix cloudy headlights

    I won't endorse this methodThe sanding is alright but an aerosol clear is 80% solvent and the amount you actually apply to the surface is minimal. Check with a reputable body shop to see if the could apply a production clear over your prepared lights. There is a built in UV protection plus a thicker build of a catylized clear coat that will be more durable. I am a collision tech in the business and we have sanded and coated lights for customers for a few years now. Our paint rep has informed us that the company is working on a " special" clear but won't tell us NOT to do what we're doing. We have tracked some of the customers for whom we've do this and overall people are pleased

    I agree this is DIY, but it's a weak band-aid at best.This is almost as bad as using a bug repellent which actually damages the plastic. Aerosol products are 80% solvents and are really not an all weather product. Performing the prep work yourself and having it professionally coated is cost efficient and and far better result
