It works in two easy steps—clean and then coat. The first step removes oxidation by using Meguiar's Perfect Clarity Cleaning Solution along with the cleaning disc. Once all oxidation is removed, simply spray two coats of the Meguiar's Perfect Clarity Coating onto the headlight for clear results with durable protection. www.meguIarS.cOm rOund-Over dIeS Van Sant Enterprises/Trick-Tools, Pella, Iowa, offers Ron Covell's Round- Over Dies.
