I replaced my headlights last year when we got it painted a year in and they are already peeling a laminate layer off. I recall some guys suggested clearcoating them. Who has done it and how’s it holding up???

I have done mine on several Cruiser, including my latest Panel Cruiser.

Two secrets:

1. Paint prep!
Remove all the old clearcoat.
Wet sanding..600....1,200...

2. Use a clearcoat with UV protectant in it!
This will reduce sun damage and yellowing.
Then wet sand again, 1,000....1,500...and polish!
