    Re: Meguiar's Keep Clear Headlight Coating

    Here are a couple of edited (to help show the damage) photos of the current, 15 year old factory lights. The driver's side is actually worse than the pictured passenger side.


    Here's one with the hood open where you can see a half/half:


    Here's the new ones with two good coats of Keep Clear:




    One tip I'd suggest would be to have a can of compressed air on hand to blow the lens off well after wiping it down. I cleaned the first lens and then quickly blew on it, but there was still some a couple of contaminants on the lens that were coated over. I spent a little extra time on the next to avoid the issue. All the dust on the lens in these pictures is on the surface after it had dried already. The coating is still tacky on the rubber trim piece, but hopefully it'll help out as the trim on the aftermarket lights tends to fail sooner than later.

    I'm happy with the product thus far!

    Just realized I haven't responded to this. Thanks for sharing! The lights look great!

    Re: Meguiar's Keep Clear Headlight Coating

    Can this be used with an applicator, or must be sprayed directly on the surface?

    Hey Murr. You may be interested in this kit as it comes with the liquid version of the coating.

    Re: Meguiar's Keep Clear Headlight Coating

    i already have a full bottle of plastx.

    should i buy the perfect clarity kit or can i use it on the headlights and then use the headlight coating?

    moreover which is better or easier to use, the aerosol version (which is sold separately) or the liquid version contain in the headlight restoration kit (heavy duty)?

    How does this stuff compare to:



    I have a bottle of that... kind of a lot left, but doesn't seem to last long.
    Rar!

In fact, you really shouldn't believe anything you read on the internet. Ever. And definitely don't take anything on the internet seriously. It's just not a good idea. Everything on the internet is a wrong. Unless I post it. Then it's probably right.

    Thanks! It works well. Of course just ensure the surrounding paint surfaces are free of dust & any loose contaminants, and be gentle when laying over surrounding paint & removing.

    Hi Murr, Absolutely must be sprayed directly on the surface, and then not touched. It lays down extremely well for an aerosol.

    Hi Rhnos,

    Plastx is used on an as needed basis to remove light oxidation. It really personal preference between the two. I have found many users like the aerosol and many like the wipe on version. There is not as much taping off with the wipe on version.

    Our G17110 Headlight Protection pictured above was basically a synthetic sealant designed specifically for clear plastic. It is recommended to be applied every 6 - 8 weeks. Our G17804 Keep Clear Headlight Coating can last up to a full year, so the durability is much longer.
