What type of tail lights do you have and how bad are the cracks / breaks?
I used super glue on a few cracks on one of my Pathfinder tail light lenses and it is water tight. Use it sparingly and DON'T get it on the face of the lens. It will melt the plastic and cause a mess. It can be cleaned up, but it is a long drawn out process....which involves sanding and buffing the plastic.

i wonder what that stuff you see on tables would do, you see it in restaurants on the tables that have the business cards or advertisements under it, it is a self leveling clear product that is really hard.
DOn't know what type you have, but when we got Hamlet, there were no replacement lenses available for the Bargman wedding cake style. My husband spent many hours piecing one of them together. It worked, but by the time Hamlet was finally road-ready, replacements had become available again. The quality of the new ones, as well as their reflective capabilities, are far superior to the originals. Our ham-style Compact only has those two rear lights, and no reflectors, so having something that's better has made us feel more visible/safer on the road. You can get them from Vintage Trailer supply for about $20 plus s&h.

Mine are the wedding cake style. I guess I could superglue the backside then spray them overall with some kind of clear coat out of a spray can. I didn't know if somebody else had already tried anything? Thanks for everybody's input!
I think the bar-top resin poured over the outside would strengthen them quite a bit. People use it to embed coins in for paperweights and such, and I built a Yacht Race game for my brother, in which I poured an inch of ocean using it, and it's very strong and very glossy. I used Envirotex Lite from an art supply store, but there are other brands too. Home Depot sells one that comes in two pint bottles in a box, in the same section of the paint dept. with the Tung oil finishes.
