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.

DIY: Polishing Foggy Headlights
Video tutorial on how to refinish your foggy/hazy plastic vehicle headlights cheap and easy. This tutorial was done on a 2004 Volkswagen Golf TDI. This is a tutorial on how to fix it, without breaking your budget and buying new headlights or lenses. You will need 1000, 1500, 2000 grit, soapy water, rubbing/polishing compound, & wax. Instead of compound, you can also use tooth paste because it does have a small amount of grit in it. Headlight polishing with toothpaste: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD0EcKrfA7M Headlight restoration using clear coat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgNNMj0gGbA Material/products: -1000 grit wet/dry sandpaper -1500 grit wet/dry sandpaper -2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper -bucket of water with car wash soap (or dish soap) -paste or liquid polishing compound/scratch remover -paste or liquid automotive wax (I used carnauba wax, but it doesn't have to be) -2 lint free polishing clothes Procedure: -first start by washing the headlight with soap and water to ensure there is no dirt which could cause problems during the sanding or polishing process -if you would like, you can tape off the adjacent areas of the fender, bumper, hood, and grill to ensure you won't damage them -using your pail of soapy water, ensure the surface of the light is wet along with the sand paper and start with the grit that you feel is necessary -my lights were very faded, so I started out with 1000 grit -once you are satisfied with the 1000 grit sanding process, you can now move up to the next finer stage of grit until you have reach the finest grit available -make sure you rinse the area and it is always kept wet for fine sanding -once done, you can now move onto polishing compound -apply the polishing compound and rub into the light, when it dries you can add a mist of water to help moisturize the product -once satisfied with the polishing, you can now move onto a scratch remover compound -you can also apply a little water to the scratch remover compound to help moisturize the product -once done with the scratch removing compound, you can now clean the area free of water and buffing compound -apply your choice of wax (I used Carnuba wax) for a protection and final polishing layer -buff until high quality shine and clarity, then remove the tape Thank you to all those who watch my videos and support my content.

How to repair a headlight with moisture/water in it!
This is how I fixed a leak in a headlight. Just remove the light and put a bead of silicone around the seem between the lens and rear housing. Remember to remove the moisture, water, condensation before you seal it. It seems most people think water gets into a headlight from rainfall and water dripping into the light some how... but I don't think this is the case. I believe when you turn your headlight on the temperature inside the light rises drastically and once you turn them of,f a suction is created and if the outside moisture is high then the moisture gets drawn into the light and later condensates. I might be wrong..... What are your thoughts?

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!!!





DIY: Headlight Restoration using Clear Coat
Video tutorial on how to refinished hazy/foggy plastic headlights by applying clear coat. This is intended to be a long term method compared to the other two methods which I have done in the past that was the wet sanding/polishing method and the method using strictly toothpaste. The headlights do not need to be removed from the vehicle or disassembled as I have shown the in the vehicle. Removing the headlights from the vehicle does help to eliminate the chance of any over spray from the clear coat or adhesion promoter landing on the paint which would need to be cleaned afterwards. This particular video was done on a 1997 BMW 540i E39 body style.

Customer Raves: Headlight Restoration Kit - G1900 "I recently purchased the Headlight Restoration Kit, and all I can say is WOW. I own a 1998 Mustang GT. It's my daily driver. Here in Wisconsin, cars take a beating. The headlights were in really bad shape. I tried another product that I found in a hardware store and it didn't do much. I was contemplating buying new headlight kits. I saw your ad in Autoweek, and watched the demo on your website. I thought I'd give it a try. I am very pleased with the result. The money I spent and the half hour of my time was worth it. I'll be looking for some of your other products to help bring back the exterior finish. If you have suggestions, I'm listening." J.K. -- Sheboygan, WI "I used your Headlight Restoration Kit and it worked really well. I had a lot of build-up on my headlights and I am definitely impressed with how well it worked.

HOW TO: Super Clean Your Windshield
Check out our new updated "express" version of this video: "HOW TO SUPER CLEAN YOUR WINDSHIELD... SUPER FAST!" http://youtu.be/gXS4pegAnN4 We found Rain-X, Invisible Glass and 0000 steel wool on Amazon.com. Click here to find Rain-X: http://tinyurl.com/n2st8rb Click here to find Invisible Glass: http://tinyurl.com/kws3yrh Click here to find steel wool: http://tinyurl.com/qjxyzn9 We demonstrate how to make the windshield of your RV or car cleaner and clearer. We'll show you how to improve the clarity of the glass and improve visibility. ------------------------------------------------------ UPDATE: A viewer wrote to say that he experienced some areas of scratching after trying this. I've never heard of it scratching before, so I just did a little Googling, and while there seem to be some people who question using steel wool, others swear by it. Some also think you should never us a razor blade on glass, and others do it all the time. One suggestion was to use wet steel wool (of course it will then rust, so pitch it afterwards). Another mentioned buying something called "Poli-Flex Rubberized Clayblock" for cleaning. Although I cannot guarantee that scratching is impossible, many people who've tried steel wool since seeing this video have been thrilled with the results. Either way, proceed slowly and with caution and at your own risk. ------------------------------------------------------ After a little time goes by, every windshield gets a little hazy. That goes double for autos that are towed right behind a large motorhome. Using our toad (towed car), we show you how to use fine steel wool, Rain-X and Invisible Glass to make your view just a little bit clearer. Although our car's windshield has a lot of little nicks from over 9 years of being towed around North America, we still want to keep it as clear as possible. Regular washing can't remove the fine dirt that gets into the pores of the glass, so we use a little detailer's trick that we learned years ago: 0000 steel wool. While you'd expect that steel wool would scratch the glass, it's exactly the opposite. Just like furniture makers use extra-fine steel wool to rub out the surface of the wood after each coat of stain, it polishes glass the same way. Everybody we've told about this little detailing trick seemed really surprised that steel wool does not scratch glass. NOTE: We mention using fine 0000 steel wool in this video. It is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE, and care should be used in storing and using it. To see our video demonstrating how to start a fire using only steel wool and a 9-volt battery, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjYecQeQ7_A The intro music is my own piano performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899. ************************************************************** DO YOUR RV SLIDE TOPPERS NEED REPLACING?
