My headlights clear coat is beginning to crack off and I was wondering if there is any way I can fix it for the time being until I buy new ones. Should I sand them down and put clear coat on? Or is there even anything I can do?

I sanded the clear coat off them I put VHT taillight paint on it to make them blacked out then put clear on them. If you don't want them back just sand and clear coat.
But I would just save up and buy some knew ones they came out alright but up close you could see they were sanded down

to hold you over wet sand them down then buff them out with polishing compound...a 3m kit will have all the grits you need and compound btw....but besides that it'll only get worse...microcracks are never far behind the clear peeling...
