    Guys, actually I have tried restoring my yellowish headlamps before... But the problem is, the yellowing always comes back after a few months or so... I tried to protect the lamps with car wax, but still it did not prevent further yellowing, maybe slowing the process, I guess.. After searching through the Web, found these few products that seems to give an "extra hard coating" after the restoration process (with exception to Meguiar's one of course, which needs to be applied regularly, as stated). Have any of you tried any of the products below?
    Headlight Protectant - Meguiars Malaysia
    GlassyLite ™ - Premium Headlight Restoration Treatment
    Welcome to Crystalite

    Thanks guys. Any feedback is appreciated.

    I haven't personally tried any of these. But the one Fishbonezken applied for me was from GZox. He had two bottles, one had completely crystallized because it wasn't kept tightly closed (solid rock hard glass crystals) and the other one was still liquid.

    So if your question whether it'll last, hell yes. But whether these other brands are any good in comparison - no idea

    Bro the one I applied for you was from GTechniq. G'ZOX does not sell their coatings :)
