New headlight from fading

I just got some new aftermarket "euro" headlights for my fox mustang(thanks ford for every single vehicle having yellow headlight)

Is there any kind of polish i can use to keep these from fading and yellowing?


Thanks
Brendan

I have a 95 SHO and a 96 Windstar with those same yellow headlamps Ford wanted all their cars to have them.

If you do a search there have been a few discussions on them here. I think a few ideas were pretty good. One as sand and clear them with a quality urethane clear to provide more UV protection. Then it was discussed that maybe the clear would chip easy being right on the front of the car and all and someone suggested applying that clear chip guard adhesive sticker stuff over it. Again, sounds like a workable sollution.

I polished my Windstar lights before my big road trip this summer and they still look good. But like gray hair, you don't notice it until you have a full head!
