After a couple of times getting Ziebart to clean the headlight that is original to the car and it clouding up again after a couple of months.
I decided to try Blue Magic on the offending headlight.
63781

Can you tell which headlight was the cloudy one?

Nice job! Be sure to put a UV sealant on there to prevent it from getting foggy again.

I wet sanded my headlight in multiple steps (different grits), then used a few layers of SprayMax 2K clear coat for long lasting UV protection, and finally I polished the clear coat to remove a bit of orange peel.

Thanks, blue magic isn't really a plastic polish it is a metal polish that doesn't have abrasives and leaves a clear silicone coating after buffing. I used it to polish a motorcycle helmet and it came out like brand new. Then used it to polish a plastic ferring on my fathers Yamaha 750 motorcycle in the 80s it came out looking almost brand new.
So I am trying to find out if it will cloud back up on the headlight.

How long has your headlight remained clear?

So far, for over 6 months. However, according to ‘the internet’, using 2K clear coat should last forever.

Hmmm, might have to invest in that process rather than buying an aftermarket external headlight and putting the honda guts in it. Thanks.
