    Cadillac XLR

    2009 XLR Platinum Silver

    Default 3M headlight plastic protectant

    I ran across this 3M Headlight clear coat protectant the other day. I tried it and it works really good, lightens up some hazing and cracking and gives it a UV protectant to stop the crazing of the headlight lens. I am going to do my tail lights too. The P3000 abrasive they talk about in the instructions is just a 3000 grit sandpaper.

    Husky makes, or did make, a head and fog light kit as well. I've got that stuff on my car. Don't know about the 3M stuff, but mine was extra thick, more so than protective film, and has a "cushy" feel to it.
