    So I'm ordering some new tails for my suburban and I'm looking for the best wax,sealant,or chemical protection to keep them looking new for a long time.something to keep them from fading.ill wash it on the regular but I just want some added protection.ill start using something as soon as I get them so I can keep that new look for years to come.probably do the same for my headlamps since there newer too.let me no what you guys use an how it's holding up please.

    When you wax your truck, wax over them just like you wax the paint, wax will protect your headlights and your tail lights just like it protects your paint.

    I use Adams polishes. His longest lasting wax type protection is called, Paint Sealant, it lasts 6-8 months. But i also use his H2O Guard and Gloss, which boosts protection and lasts 2 months. Im sorta obsessed with detailing my cars. Feel free to ask anything you would like. If i dont know the answer ill ask around. They also have forums. http://www.adamsforums.com/

    Sand and clear them. The only thing I would know of as they're plastic.
