Headlights Peeling..

Sooooo I was just thinking of this issue seeing that my headlights have been peeling for about a week now. I was just wondering what should I do? I was reading about some one said wet sand then spray clear coat on em or a fine grit sand paper but wouldnt that scratch the lens I kinda dont wanna buy all new headlights and or either want to scratch my lens on my headlights now.

Any ideas on helping thus issue?

Thanks.

Gen 4s dont peel!

I would think a very high grit wetsand paper and a few shots of clear would suffice though.

What kind of clear thought? Like spray paint clear lol

And yea I was watching a few vids on how to wet sand your lights and polish em.

Idk I like my halos. Do gen 4s have halos? I dont think they do.
