Just if you're wondering, this does almost nothing to protect headlights from UV rays. I tried it after polishing the headlights a few times and it yellows in roughly the same amount of time as when you don't apply it.
If you polish your headlights, you need to get a UV clear coat or make your own diy coat with UV wood spar and paint thinner in a 50:50 mixture. That will last roughly a year.

And who said it was for headlights?

This is NOT meant for Glass or Poly carbonate (which most headlights are made of)

This is for Vinyl, Plastic, Rubber, Fiberglass, Leather.
Mostly for your dash board, your rubber seals and for your hoses and belts under the hood.

I think most headlights are plastic now. I typically use wax on the headlights.

For you enthusiasts, what would you recommend for protecting typical leather seats in a vehicle parked outdoors in CA?

Maybe you shouldn't post any deals if you are going to troll commentors.

If you don't agree his post, you can just say so without all the theatrics.

Dude, why would you or him use a product for a purpose thats its NOT intended for and then report on how it does not work. How stupid are you and him?

No where does this product claim it can be used for polishing headlights. Clearly, stupidity has infected the whole nation since the election.

Theatrics is from idiots using products the way they were never meant to be used then bitching about how they didnt work.

You do realize polycarbonate is a type of plastic? He didn't use it to polish his headlight, he used it after polishing to try and protect the plastic.

Not really a big deal. Even the site below recommended it for headlights.

The best protection in the industry for your UV sensitive surfaces 303 Aerospace Protectant!

Of all the products offered at the Autogeek, this one has to be the most versatile. Vinyl convertible tops, boat enclosures, tonneau covers, car bras, vinyl RV awnings, headlights, spa covers…these are just a few of the places that benefit from this protectant that contains an SPF 40 sunscreen.

Actually, the manufacturer itself does recommend it for headlights, so I guess you are totally wrong.

303 Aerospace Protectant is highly regarded in many online fora (forums, if you don't speak Latin) for its ultraviolet blocking abilities. Under the assumption that Spyder headlight covers are Lexan, I eMailed 303 Products:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Querry:

I have replaced the Lexan covered headlight assemblies on my Toyota MR2 Spyder due to clouding/yellowing. Supposedly the discoloration is due to ultraviolet light exposure.

I am considering applying 303 Aerospace Ptotectant to prevent future damage.
Is 303 APC compatible with Lexan? ie Does it adhere properly? Does it damage Lexan?
Is the level of UV protection afforded by 303 APC adequate to prevent future discoloration?




Response (edited):

Most plastic over headlights is high impact acrylic, endures better than polycarbonate. But both will eventually yellow.

The answers to your questions are:
Yes.
Yes.
No.
Yes.

Spray on, wipe COMPLETELY dry. Reapply periodically, typically when the
car is washed and you reapply 303 A. Protectant to the vinyl, rubber,
other plastic trim. This maintains UV protection level and also
repellency.

This is a long-term use for this product. For your interest here is a
link from 303's website. This link details the procedure commercial
applicators use to refurbish oxidized, scratched Lexan and acrylic
panels. This was written up in the early 90's so the equipment and
supplies list is somewhat dated. However, the technique and use of 303
A. Protetant at the end (to perfect and protect the finish) is current.

&category_id=123

In our case...using it on our vehicles as a preventative, we apply, not
with a buffer, by spraying on and wiping completely dry. Then polish a
bit with a dry cloth to enhance the bonding and longevity.

Please contact me if 303 Products, Inc. can assist further. RKD

BRIGHTEN HEAD LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS

Using 303 to clean headlightsAs you probably know, head lights and tail lights on modern automobiles are madeof plastic. These plastic lenses may accumulate dirt and grime during normal driving. This accumulation causes lights to appear dim. Plastic lenses may also become brittle from exposure making the lenses susceptible to cracking or breaking.

Applying 303 ® Aerospace Protectant TM after each car wash can help to keep the plastic head and tail light lenses on your car clean. Aerospace Protectant TM also protects the lenses from UV damage.

These four do-it-yourself auto repair projects are all easy and inexpensive ways to keep your vehicle looking like new.
