    PlastX Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish is used on an as needed basis to remove light oxidation from headlights & increase clarity/gloss. You do not need to avoid using it, it is just not ideal to use on a light which has our Keep Clear Headlight Coating on it. If you have a light which has a coat of our Keep Clear Headlight Coating on it, & you want to apply another coat 6 months down the road, it would be OK to just re-apply another coat on a clean & dry, properly taped off light. If you want to use a mild polish like PlastX, it would be ideal to remove the Keep Clear Headlight Coating, either with multiple applications of PlastX or by using 91% isopropyl alcohol a few times.

    How did you clean them? If you polished them super smooth, you might have a problem. Clearcoats need a tooth to adhere to properly.

    This product is not a clear coat paint. It does not require a scuffed or sanded surface for proper adhesion.

    OK, I was going by what the 3M product I use says to do.

    We also use Plastx when we restore our headlights for our customers. Its a great product and we will continue to use it.
