    New headlights (DT Moto) and painted the emblem Barcelona Red!

    I like it. The old headlights were pretty bad, and I really like the look of these new ones. Took about an hour to swap out the old and put in the new. Really simple.

    DT Moto. Got them on eBay for
    About $80. Surprisingly good fit and quality. I sealed them up good with silicone prior to installation. Excited to see how they hold up.

    Use a plastic sealant to help maintain the clear coat. You can get them on Amazon for about $13.00

    This stuff works really good especially if you coat it several times in a row. Im using it currently on a few of my cars head lights. So far so good.

    3.4oz Surface Sealant, Easy Clean Coating, Water Repellent for Glass, Plastic or Metal, Clean, Seal, Preserve. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00977JKSA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_DM8LybKRMMVPB

    So far so good with that stuff. Again make sure and do multiple coats. Let each coat haze dry before wiping it off and then apply another coat. The instructions on the bottle even state doing so provides better protection.

    On another note, this stuff worked great restoring my factory third brake light red lense. It was hazy due to age and after a couple of coats of this stuff it has brought back the clarity and shine making it look new. I swapped this brake light for a new LED one and am now considering selling the factory one as it could be use by somebody else who might need a replacement.
