    The correct way of applying clear coat to headlights its by sanding them and finishing off at 1000grit. Then with a spray gun you shoot clear on them. Now i dont know what clear you are using but a "clear coat" consit of clear and hardener. What stuff are you exactly using?

    Dvelup is a headlight reconditioning system. I think I'd just use Opti-Coat.
