re: Tail Light Lens and Reflector Coating

I had some pretty good scratches in the rear reflector of my 81' SC. I have successfully polished them out (3M 600, 1500, 2000, rubbing compound, white polishing compound) But there is an apparent line of demarcation between the polished area and the untouched portion. It is obviously some sort of clear coat layer. Although it has about a quarter inch of feathered transition it is obvious that the unpolished section has a coating.

Can anyone tell me what this is and how it can be replicated. I know that some tail light tinting kits (a vial modification in its own right) come with a can of what appears to be plain aerosol clear enamel, but this doesn't seem to be as thick as one would expect out of a spray coat.

Not to mention that I don't want to spray on something that will eat the reflector (a black letter item).

Any info would be appreciated.

Thank you,
