Any recommendations as to what spray I should use?

Not yet. I need to polish mine again before I spray them. I figure I'll use regular polyurethane in a rattle can.

I just put a little wd40 on them once a week, works crazy good. the haze eventually comes back after the week but it gives me something to do when im not cutting her up hahah

Give linseed oil a try. I do mine once a year or so with it. Lasts a really long time.

The are a lot of after market headlight assemblies out there that seem to fade quickly within two years so its not worth the $100 or $200 to get them. A little elbow grease goes a long way.
Did your kit come with the drill buff pad as well ?

Yes it does come with a drill buff pad. There are two versions of the kit with or without the drill buff pad.
