Headlight UV Protection

So I restored my headlights and they look great, I know they'll start to look hazy after a couple months though.

I read that clear coating them would help protect them over the long run, my problem now is which clear coat should I use on my headlights? I want the shine to last atleast a year - two years.

Re: Headlight UV Protection

A good urethane clear SHOULD be sufficient. Don't go with a single part clear; catalyzed paints are always stonger.

However, it would be wise to do some research into what clearcoats have the best UV protection.
