    Too Much Headlight Sealant?

    Hi team

    So I bought the Meguiars 2 Step Headlight Kit G2970, I have used this kit before on other vehicles of mine with no issue

    This time on my 2010 Impreza STI after a few coats of the sealant after sanding I'm getting a glazed, blurry effect? I did do this outside in the sun is this the issue? is too many coats an issue?

    If so how do I remove the coating and start again?

    You should be able to use a polish or compound to remove it.

    I would use a compound. I removed a head light coating one and it kinda smeared

    If you take isopropyl alcohol, dispense a liberal amount onto a microfiber towel, and then rub the face of the headlight, & repeat, this will remove.
