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.

How to Restore Headlights PERMANENTLY
Headlight Restoration using Clear Coat. This video will show you how to clean and restore your headlights so they will never turn yellow or hazy again! You have seen videos on restoring headlights with bug spray, toothpaste, baking soda, and the kits you buy in the store, but all of these methods are temporary and eventually the haze and oxidation will come back. My method will first make the headlight clear by wet sanding and then put a UV coat on it to seal it in.

1997 Subaru Legacy JDM Headlight Installation
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ We cleaned them and they turned out pretty good but then Cody Doughty sent me these great JDM headlights for my Subaru and I HAD to use them. The difference is amazing when I drive at night so thank you Cody. I hope this video also redeems me for the last video I did on soldering and shows that I really can solder wires together and do a decent job of rebuilding a harness and figuring out how to wire these things up.

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.

How to Super Clean Your Windshield with Steel Wool
It sounds crazy but rubbing STEEL WOOL on your WINDSHIELD won't hurt it! Tempered windshield glass is higher on the MOHS scale of hardness than steel wool, so it won't scratch.

We'll show you how to improve the clarity of the glass and improve visibility. 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 a decade of being towed behind our motorhome, 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. NOTE: We use extra-fine 0000 steel wool in this video. It's EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE, so exercise care in storing and using it. 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. The intro music is my own piano performance of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag from 1899.
