Many people have asked me "what is up with my headlights", well lately I have had duct tape on them because I hadnt figured out how to finish my project of doing a HID retro conversion. Basically taking the old halagen headlights and replacing them with HID projectors from a newer SUV. Upgrading. Now many people simply put "HID KITS" in there headlights just replacing the bulb,which is a poor excuse for proper lighting. The original housing cannot focus that much light and simply blinds everyone else on the road. But when I pull up next to a wall and shine my lights along with a range rover or BMW it would take a true lighting guru to tell which was mine ,a 77 international scout or a 80,000 dollar BMW SUV.

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.

Xenon-Vision Bi-Xenon HID Install
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. There is NO need to disable the Daytime Running Light (DRL) module if
you have the Bi-Xenon HID kit. The reason being that the DRLs will run off
the low beam and will not flicker as I initially thought. If you have the
non-Bi-Xenon (no HID hi-beam), then you WILL have to disable the DRLs (from
what I understand).
2. If you happened to have disable the DRLs, it is likely that your
interior dome light will not work, as was my experience. No idea why the
DRL module is connected to the dome light but I'm not a Toyota engineer.
3. There are two things that look like grounding wires in the kit ... they
actually are not. They are connected to the battery terminals. The wire
coming from the two fuses go to the POSITIVE terminal while the wire coming
off the control unit go to the NEGATIVE terminal. I unscrewed the nut that
helps tighten the clamp around the battery and then placed the wire in
between the clamp and the nut.
4. The clips only fit one way except for the one on the ballast. You will
see in the video how they should connect but the red wire should go to the
5. There is a metal bar in the front of the car with holes in it. Run the
wiring through that to ensure that the wires don't melt on the radiator or
get caught in the fan (that would be bad news!).
6. Lay your wires out to get a sense of how things connect together.
7. It is normal to have one of the original headlight wiring harness not
All in all, the install is very easy. I did it in about an hour and a half
but if I knew what I just wrote above, it probably would have taken 30
Hope this help anyone that is installing the Bi-Xenon kit in their Yaris!

answer them for you. Cheers

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.
