Headlight Restoration

Buy it HERE

Fogged headlight lenses not only make your car look tired but also restrict the amount of light illuminating the road ahead of you. Headlight restoration kits are cheap and can produce dramatic results. I recommend the Sylvania's Headlight Restoration Kit, selling for just over $20. There are a dozen other kits available at different prices, including some that include a buffing wheel to eliminate the manual labor.

Step 1: Preparation
Wash lenses, mask painted surface (tape included in kit). Next, spray on the Surface Activator--a proprietary surface corrosion softener only from Sylvania. Immediately, you’ll see the yellow gunk start to break down.
Step 2: Sand/Polish
Remove corrosion with a wet-sanding process using the provided 3 grades of premium waterproof sanding papers (400, 1000, 2000 grit). You’ll notice the lens to take on a cloudy, smooth finish. Apply the oil-free Clarifying Compound. Already, this step will help you feel confident in the kit’s ability. You’ll be amazed at how clear the lenses will be.
Step 3: Clarify/Seal
You’ll then apply the UV Block Clear Coat. It’s simple. Just apply as instructed in smooth, even applications. This UV Block Clear coat is a specially formulated polymer coating with active and passive UV blockers. This is the component that gives you long-lasting results.
