Headlight Lens Protector

I am looking for a protector of some kind for the plastic headlight lens on my 2000 Nissan Maxima. I have seen repair products and processes both online and in stores, but I can't find a restorer that will protect them locally (only online) and I prefer not to buy online. I understand some car waxes have UV protection and they might work, but I don't know for sure and I don't want to borrow trouble. My lens are like new and I would like to keep them that way.

"3m headlight protection" in a Google search turned up tons of stuff. I'm not sure how much they protect against UV or whether its mostly stone and debris chips.

Clearmask I think is what I've seen most.

UV Lens Protector

I think I mislead some of you. I'm looking for a liquid that can be applied to plastic headlight lens that would help prevent the yellowing and frosting up. I found some online, but I'm looking for the name of some that might be purchased locally.

Now how would we know what stores are in your area, I live in So Cal and buy from Eastwood a lot. It takes around a week to receive your order depending on the shipper selected.

Ray...truly never heard of anything like you are talking about. I would think any of the Instant Detail stuff (I really like Eagle 1 Nano wax) applied weekly would work just fine..and probably be much cheaper than any specialty product. At least for UV.

If its from driving in blowing grit and sand (like here) you need some sort of film.
