    Any conclusions on a UV protection spray for our restored headlights?

    As the title says really, I have spent a lot of time looking but not really found any definitive answers. I know there is one method which involves curing with a UV light and is very expensive. Are there any 'conditioning products' anyone has found? So far I have found these that may help but it's still unclear! (excuse the pun)

    Has anyone that has used the method of wet and dry then buffing had any rapid deterioation (sp) yet?

    EDIT....

    Just re read your post... damn skim reading...

    Well... I don't have any protection on mine and I know they don't look quite as good as maybe when I did them looking at the photos... that said I am going to redo them as part of the spring/summer detail and look to bung clear laminx on them and see what happens

    haha, no problem I was going to say that the sticky thread is what had inspired me to do it in the first place!

    Although I also re read the sticky and realised I missed the lamin x part and will look into that now!
