Wj Sooo - You polished your headlights..

...to remove your "Clouding". Is there such a thing as a headlight wrap that one done protects the clouding or crazing from reappearing??

Id like to find a good answer to this as well. I dont mind polishing mine once every month or so but they start to haze over pretty quick and look bad until I can get to them again. Ive considered just buying a new set but after a polish my current set they look brand new...

Did you go through with the whole scotch brite pad sanding process then polish and seal? I use the turtle wax kit as well but just rub the compound on then wax it off. Have yet to use the sealant but will do the full process next time.

If only manufacturers would offer glass lenses again. They lasted decades.

You can clear coat it or you can buy this:

Might shop around though, as that was the first result Google brought up.

Yes I went through the hole process and really took my time on each step it gets tiring but well worth it.

I've seen those, you can also get different tints and black out your lights at the same time. You can also peel it right of If you don't like it.

I use the Meguiar's kit and then do some basic spray-on wax afterwards. My WJ is pretty new (to me) still but this has worked pretty well on other vehicles.

BTW, here are the results from my recent polishing attempt.

I've got some set on mine that I haven't had to touch in 4 years. I'm guessing they're not factory...

I had a "cloud patch" that didn't quite cover the entire lens, but did make it look horrible. I looked into buffing them out, but heard so many more cons than pros, I found in the end it was just easier to replace them...and it was like night and day! Just from changing out the headlights, my '01 went from aged looking to almost new!!! Tack on a few alterations I made and the Jeep looks pretty good! Currently changing out most of the bushings to eliminate rattles, and trying to figure out a cheap solution to a front Pinion ring and seal exchange to get rid of a front end vibration and to regain use of my 4WD, without any luck so far.
