Sure, why not? But the question is, why would you want to?

:stupid:

Why wouldn't you want to? If it has surface contaminates and bugs on it, clay it, and wax it, and it'll be great.:thumbup:

Clay does wonders for plastic headlight lenses and tailights. Makes tham smooth and buttery just like the paint!

Yes, and clay also works well on the windows. As always, be sure to use plenty of lubricant. My car was clayed and waxed yesterday--it's soooo smooth!

Thanks. So I clayed (Clay Magic lubed w/ soapy water), polished and waxed (Meguiar's Deep Crystal) yesterday. Worked out great! I was afraid of the clay at first but I am now a proponent:thumbup: Super smooth surface, car looks great.
