    How can we make it mirror smooth like the factory coating?

    I'm sure if we all think about it and are willing to experiment (I'll try it out on my car), we can come up with something good. Thanks for any help you can provide.
    We do not believe you will be able to successfully buff this. We have engineered it to lay down very flat, and it does, but to the discerned eye, it will not be the exact same as factory, but again, for 99% of persons, it looks great.

The only issue is that you need to make larger cans of this so we are not buying this as much as we are.
    Happy to hear you enjoy using it. I will pass along your feedback regarding larger sizes.

    When using any of our headlight restoration products be sure to read & follow the directions on the product packaging, and use this article for a reference.

    If you have new lights or are using a different method to restore them, Meguiar's G17804 Keep Clear Headlight Coating can be used to protect them, and provides protection for 1 year(*Lab tested per ASTM G154-12a).

    For the pictures below we used Keep Clear Headlight Coating on our company 2017 Ford Transit 150.

    It is recommended for best results to apply in the shade to a cool surface. Next, use a glass cleaner like Meguiar's Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner to thoroughly clean any dirt & grime from the headlights.

    Here are the BEFORE pictures of the lights.





    Since the product is an aerosol application, it is recommended to protect the surrounding surfaces of the headlight to prevent over-spray. If any over-spray were to get on a surrounding surface, it is recommended to wipe off immediately, since it can become stubborn to remove if left to dry.
    Thank you, I was looking for this information
