With that said, you can probably get away with sanding, and not buffing, and spray this coating directly over 3000 grit. Potentially 1000 Grit.

    Hope this helps.

    Feel free to post further questions.
    Nick are you saying for Megs Headlight Coating the best method is not to polish or compound after sanding? I have to go to 3000 grit as 1000 grit is not clear, but I could leave off the compounding and polishing if it helps the coating to adhere and last longer.

    Hey, if you are sanding with automotive sandpapers, we would recommend using a compound to fully remove the sanding marks, then using a polish to refine/ provide added clarity, and then apply our Keep Clear Headlight Coating. This would be our process recommendation for best results when using our keep clear headlight coating after an automotive sanding restoration process.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to post further questions.

    Unfortunately it appears your post got cut off. This is an ongoing issue we are in the process of attempting to fix. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it does not. Feel free to post again without using an apostrophe and I can edit it to be correct.

    Re: Meguiar's Keep Clear Headlight Coating

    Just applied this to brand new Morimoto hybrid lamps for my F150. I was a little nervous because I’ve seen so many people online complain about speckling, orange peel and other uneven results. I did mine inside in about 68F climate controlled after buffing the new lenses with stoners glass cleaner and a micro fiber. Gotta say I’m pretty impressed. I did three coats 3 minutes apart on each light and ran it a little heavy. The surface levels very nicely and the one run I did create even leveled out almost completely. I suspect those with uneven results might either be applying to warm/hot lenses or are spraying it on too thin?
