Wipe New (Headlight restore)

So my father in law brought it for his car.

I polished my E36 headlights first and then applied it.

The effects held up for about 6 months and then it started to chip a bit.

I ended up wet sanding to remove it.

My review is mixed. It was enough to prevent monthly polishing but not enough to seal the lens. I do find that whatever chemicals are there, are still on the lens and I dont have to clean them as much now. It's been a year since the application.

For $9, I'd say try it but I would rather buy new lens at this point. I have no reviews on how it hold up with rubber trim etc.

Did you apply any type of sealant after polishing? I used 303 Aerospace Protectant, and it's held up over a while now.
