Re: How well does this work?

It's okay I did it to my front parking lights and signals. But I prefer a shop to do it.

Here's the process I did to do it:
-clean headlights/tailights with alcohol or some degreaser then sand them with 1000 grit

-Then add your first coat then wait a little bit for it to dry

- Add you second coat and then add as many after that (be careful though not too many coats)

-Then after how many coats you have done wait until it's dry and then sand it again with 1000 grit or 1500 grit. I did 1500.

-Then clear them

Gives a reason why you should sand the light and then put clear coat.
