question about headlight restoration

Hey guys, got a quick question about headlight restoration process.
It might be a stupid one but.. here it is.

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

From my understanding you will have to remove the clear bra, use the headlight restoration kit, and then reapply a clear bar.

I'm not 100% on this, but it makes the most sense.

yeah that's what I thought as well since the restoration product works on plastic surface..

If there is a clear bra on the light, it should have protected the light from needing restoration so unsure why you would need to restore anything.

Well it's more of a general statement since you didn't post any pics and I don't know what the quality of your clear bra is.
