    I ended up using this $5 can of Clear w/ UV protection the other day and it left my trim pieces feeling rough and flat looking.

    What do you guys recommend for a glossy look on plastic that will hold up against the sun and weather?

    Also, does it matter what type of clear I use to put on the headlights? I wetsanded them down, polished, now want to clear so they don't yellow agian.

    Cliffs: What clear will look good and hold up against weather and sun? What clear can I use on my headlights?

    Thanks OT :wavey:

    You can't 'clear' your headlights, just polish them when you polish the paint and they should continue to look good.

    You can use Optimum's Opti-Seal not only on your paint but hard plastic trim as well. Holds up decently too.

    I used it on the paint, trim and wiper blades on both this Porsche and this Saleen.

    Oh I've heard of plenty of people that cleared ehm to prevent yellowing. I just ended up buying Meguire's PlastX which worked great.

    That Opti-Seal looks :bowdown:Time to order some of that.

    Thanks :hsd:
