    Headlight Restoration kits

    Anyone ever try one of these things? I need to clean up my headlights for a safety check and found this one at Canadian Tire:

    Permatex Headlight Lens Restoration Kit

    Do they work well enough? I suppose for $20 and an hour's time it's worth a try.

    Garth what i have tried is very fine water sand paper in 1000 grit and clear coat after.Sand the lense down with wet sand paper(leave in water for 10 min.prior to using)then in between each sanding apply a light spraying of clear coat.I did mine in 3 coats and it really worked out.You can buy all this at CTC or auto parts store.Not sure how long it lasts but it only cost me 9.00 total.
    Good luck with your project

    I have seen the results with the 3M kit. Quite impressive! And of course I'm sure you are aware its only for the plastic lenses not glass...

    I recently saw someone on TV do a credible job with toothpaste and a paper towel. Never tried it myself, but worth a shot, can't hurt.

    Might not work, but at least your headlights will be minty fresh.
    When applying the Rules, you follow them line by line. You don't read between them.

    Here's the video for the 3M system.

    If toothpaste does what I need for my headlights, I'm going to stop using toothpaste.....
