    Ceramic on headlights and taillights?

    I searched, but did not find the answer but suspect it has been answered before. I am about to apply Crystal Serum Light and wondered if you typically apply such coatings to headlights and tail lights as well, or does the coating literally only bond to clear coat? Thanks.

    Re: Ceramic on headlights and taillights?

    I would.

    One thing I normally do, is whatever I'm using on the paint - I use on the plastic. In most cases it will work.

    Certainly can't do any harm.

    Just prep like you would the paint, for example, if you're machine polishing the paint, run the polisher over the headlights and taillights, then chemically strip, (panel wipe), and then apply the coating.
