View Full Version : How long will this last?

I tried to restore the headlights on my car last night. I wet sanded with 2000 grit. Then used Meguiar's Ultimate Compound. Then finished with Meguiar's Cleaner Wax Paste. This is just stuff I had around. I kinda winged it but I love the outcome and i'm very happy.

Not perfect, but happy. (pics took at night as I started at 8pm)

I just want to know how long will it last??

It depends on how much UV exposure (latitude, garaged, etc.) but I'd say you'll have to repeat the UC once a year.

Thank you! I think i can handle once a year :)

Would the work last any longer if the headlights were sealed with Klasse Sealant Glaze or the like?

I tried the OP's method and it works but didn't last too long (~1month)

And then i tried Shoeless's method and the result was jaw dropping. It's that much better.
