Did you spray clearcoat on them?

There's a chemical protectant you can buy too.
We should get into the sympathy business.  There is a killing to be made.

Yeah, you could use just about any sealant, wax, ceramic coating, polymer whatever-the-fuck.  But clear-coat is going to be the most permanent.  However, does clearcoat block UV?  UV is what brings back fading/yellowing, so you want to block that first and foremost.  A couple applications of a paint sealant or similar per year ought to help (can apply on top of clearcoat if you decide to clear them).

The kits to restore your headlights at the auto parts places have "UV protectant" but it's on wet wipes, doubt it's super effectively applied that way.
