Restoring Headlights with 3M Kit -EricTheCarGuy
I've done other headlight restoration videos, one in fact, but when I tried this kit earlier this year I found it to be the easiest and most effective kit that I've used to date. I chose the kit for the drill but if you don't have a drill you can also get the 'human' operated kit. As you'll see in the video that kit comes with a few extra items. Just be sure to mask off the area before you begin work. If not, you might end up with some scratches on your finish. Otherwise I feel this is something any DIYer can do and get great results from.

Follow Greg's top detailing tips for a professional and PERMANENT fix to hazy headlight damage! Or if you don't have the time or equipment to do this yourself, hire a professional who only uses these professional methods to do the job. Restoring the headlights you have can save you time, money, and the environment. High end vehicles can have expensive motors and HID components in stock headlights, which can cost thousands of dollars to replace the pair. Repairing headlights can prevent the need to tear apart the front end of the vehicle to remove and replace the units. Refinishing the headlights you have can also keep them on the car and out of the landfill, saving the environment from extra waste and plastic trash.
