Headlamp Restoration The Right Way with DA Sander
Professionally restoring headlight lenses removing oxidized faded foggy
I used some 3M products I usually use in clear coat sanding to restore my
2001 Honda insight headlamps before I sell her tomorrow. The new owners
will like this.
I used 1500 Trizact hook it 3 discs on a 6" interface foam pad to the 6"
Dynabrade 3/32" (2.5mm) Model 21055 6" DA
Then 3000 grit and a polish with 3M medium cut compound.
Add clear paint protection film over the lamps after or use a strong epoxy

Chemical Guys Tech Talk shows you the professional way to restore plastic
headlights back to the original crystal clear appearance. Chemical Guys
will show you how to wet sand the headlights and prepare for the polishing
process. Wet Sanding is performed with Chemical Guys Sanding block and
extra fine sand paper.
Next, the headlights are polished using V34, V36, and V38 optical polishes
using the orange, green, and black Hexlogic polishing pads. The Flex PE-14
Rotary Polisher teamed with the Evolve 4R mini backing plate has the
polishing power to remove the sanding scratches and restore the crystal
clear appearance to the headlight.
To protect the headlight from feature fading from sun damage, we use a coat
of JetSeal which is formulated specifically to protect the headlight
against harmful UV Rays.
Keep your car or truck looking great with Chemical Guys!!!

Baking Soda Kills Headlight Haze
An alternative, all-natural method to clean the milky haze from plastic
headlights and taillights.
The recipe is simple: In a plastic bowl, mix Murphy's™ Oil Soap and
Baking Soda together to about the consistency of pancake batter. Wet a soft
rag or towel, dip into the solution, and rub out the haze using circular
and crisscross motions.
You'll feel resistance as you rub into the haze. Keep scrubbing, using more
paste as needed to completely remove the haze. Rinse, and repeat as
I didn't mask off the areas around my truck's taillights, but you might
want to mask off around where you're doing your work, if you want.
Made this video as a response to a post about removing plastic headlight
haze over at corolland[dot]com.
How To Restore Clarity To Plastic Headlights Easily

It does not matter what type of car you have once the headlight are poly
carbonated plastic the headlights will start to oxide after 2 to 3 years
and the sunshine state is more prone to headlights oxidation. The oxidize
headlights goes through different stages. So your headlights will go from
hazy to cloudy then foggy then yellow then white after the white stage this
is where it starts to etch into the headlight lense and starts to get like
The step of oxidation to your headlights:
First a light line will start to appear on the top of the headlights where
the rain water drips on the headlights. Then the UV ray from the sun start
to tear the manufacturers seal on your headlight. Because nobody takes the
time to clean their headlights the debis from the road, bugs, bird
droppings and other elements start like a cancer to eat away the seal on
yur headlights. By the way pebbles from traffic also play havoc on your
headlights as well. They make stone bruises on your headlights which locks
in all the other elements as mention before.
The solution RESTORE your headlights. There is no need to replace your

How To Restore Headlights - EricTheCarGuy
I've probably been asked about doing this video more than any other. The
Subaru makes a prime candidate to test this out. I did make some mistakes
when it came to using the buffer so try and learn from those by not using
the terry cloth attachment and also making sure you don't stay in one place
too long, otherwise stick to the directions and do stuff by hand, do it
fast enough and it will be good cardio.
You can find the Quixx kit that I used at Walmart, Pep Boys, and Autozone
in addition to your local auto parts supplier. Also here at this link.
