  4. Headlight UV coat refurbishing questions

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So i have a pair of aftermarket headlights i puchased from spyder a year ago, and it looks like a plastic film is starting to chip or peel away from the actual headlights. I'm pretty sure this is the UV protectant layer most OEM headlights have in the plastic, this is just a cheaper method for...

    Like many others I have the dreaded headlight haze. Lots of write-ups on how to correct but, I was wondering how many added a protective film after they polished. Does it do any good? Old posts show a link to a product called Lamin - X.

    B5 Garage My '00 GLX has pretty bad hazing from 3 years of the Florida sun and outdoor parking. I tried the Permatex headlight restore kit, but even after sanding it's still hazy. After getting the lenses wet I noticed, as everyone else has, that the water does a great job...
