Most kits I look at don't have the clear coat spray paint tho.. I have 1 light that's starting to yellow. There factory, So I'm just gonna restore both and put some eyelids on them, instead of messing with the projector kind.

escapefate will become famous soon enough
I am starting to get some fade on my drivers side and I have used these kits before on my Ford and they are a TEMP fix. Nothing I did ever fixed my headlights. I used the turtle wax kit that even had you Cure the head lights with some serum crap.


Is there anything that works????

Unless you do the complete new clear coat like in the video your headlights will always fade. It's just the plastic once it gets heated over time by the lights then it'll release a chemical that hazes the plastic. You can switch to led lights those tend to run cooler than halogens and will take longer for the headlights to haze.
