question about detailing

Hey guys, got a quick question about headlight restoration process.

So I bought this restoration kit and the thing is I have clear bra on both of my headlights. I assume I should not use the restoration kit on top of clear bra installed headlight?

Should I remove clear bra and do the restoration and then put a new set of clear bra protector on them for further protection?

Thanks in advance

Before I answer your question, can you explain what's wrong with your headlights that you think you might need headlight restoration?

Then why would you need to restore it? You should treat your bra like paint. You need to wax and polish it.

Yeah. If no yellowing, you definitely don't need any restoration. Just polish and wax it like what bapesta said.

I just polished my dirty ass bra and it came out shiny. It's also easier if you have a buffing machine. I bought the Griot's kit.
