I haven’t used a spray-on, but in the past I have used a paste-type applicator that you buff on and then wipe off. It seems to help, but you have to apply it quite a few times to really notice a significant effect. I believe the yellowing/cloudiness in the cover is due primarily to sun (i.e., UV) exposure and/or aging of the plastic covering. The UV exposure may be relatively skin deep and can be removed somewhat using the buffing/sanding technique. After a while continued UV exposure would cause the cloudiness to return and you will have to buff it off again. This is just from my own observations and scientific intuition and isn’t based on any actual studies.TeamAsgrowParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 2:55 pmPost count: 9152CRIA1576ParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 3:16 pmPost count: 588
Thank you fellas and that is about what I assumed.
Roger that on the garage Asgrow. Unfortunately farm came with a sad excuse for a garage that is only fit for storing wood and morton shed is 150 feet away and only has a huge slider. Yes, I could use it, but it has a couple boats and a tractor in it all the time and is just inconvenient.
I need to build a quality garage next to the house but don’t have the scratch at the moment. 😉henpopperParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 5:10 pmPost count: 51littlealfetParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 6:20 pmPost count: 739TrapCycloneParticipantAugust 30, 2017 at 6:52 pmPost count: 2552
You might want to check out Flitz gun polish. Works great on stainless steel and, from a quick look at the FAQ on their website it looks like they say it can be used to clean up dull headlights. Don’t blame me if it doesn’t work or makes things worse, so use it at your own risk, of course!

My experience is that nothing works, except replacing the lens. But if you have a 20 yr. old car like me you can’t find them anymore.
Guessing it differs from vehicle to vehicle, weather conditions, age of the vehicle and so on.
Mine has been in the garage every hour except when we’re at work with it.

I’ve used deet also and it works OK, but was told not to get it on the paint as it would damage it.
DEET is definitely some nasty stuff when I used to coon hunt I would occasionally use the 100% and you didn’t want to get it on any plastic like you light or helmet, it would get really sticky /gooy.
The other day a friend was telling me he just cleaned his up with something. I’ll have to see what it was, but it was also the first time so I don’t know how long it will last. He said it worked good thoughkenhumpParticipantSeptember 22, 2017 at 3:19 amPost count: 12769OldbearParticipantSeptember 22, 2017 at 6:15 amPost count: 2840
