    Prep for Keep clear headlight coating?

    I've been using wax on my headlights which aren't terrible but aren't great, especially on the tops so I ordered a can of the Keep clear to apply to the flat tops. My question is... What do I need to do to prepare the lights for the coating? I'm guessing something to remove all the wax at a minimum, maybe clay bar or polishing compound? Thanks!

    Hi SLM,

    The only prep which is needed when applying our Keep Clear Headlight Coating on lights in good shape is to clean them with glass cleaner, like our Perfect Clarity Glass Cleaner. Then apply to a clean & dry headlight. Hope this helps! Below is an article I did with more information:

    Feel free to post further questions.

    Thanks Nick! Now I just have to wait for some decent weather when it isn't raining, windy or both!

    Agreed! It would be best to not expose the coated light to wet weather for 24 hours after application (for best results)!
