Came in yesterday I applied it this morning,great product bottle but it doesn't require much apply as directed and it leaves a glass-like finish all of the usual minor surface scratches are gone awesome product thank you!
Wow--this stuff is basically magic. Some people say they bought sand paper to go with this. Don't do that. At least to start. First just use this normally and see what it does for you. Here are some thoughts: DEFINITELY TAPE. Don't skip the step of masking taping up around your headlights. It doesn't take that long. Use masking tape, painters tape, that kind of tape. DO IT IN THE SHADE. Definitely do this project in the shade. The reason is that it is so much easier to see if you need to clean the lights more before you spray the coating. In the sun, it will look cleaner than it will in the shade. It's not the end of the world if you do this in the sun, though. I did for most of the process and it looks awesome. YOU NEED TOWELS. I used two full size towels doing this. You're using the towels for buffing off the cleaning solution and for drying after you clean the light. You need separate towels for those two things. SCRUB HARD. Put some elbow grease into it when you're doing the Cleaning step. DON'T WORRY ABOUT PERFECT. Great news--you can do the Cleaning step over and over until you think you got it all clean. When you finish applying the cleaning solution and it dries, buff it off with a dry towel. If you still see darker spots, clean those spots more. HAZY IS CORRECT AND WEIRD. The weirdest thing about using this stuff is that after you've cleaned the light, it will not look clean. It looks hazy and sort of like it has condensation on it. This is the way it is supposed to look. You'll see. After you buff off the dry cleaning solution, you'll see that the light looks clean but hazy. That's exactly what you want. The next step is magic so get ready. SPRAYING THE COATING IS MAGIC. The best step is spraying the coating on the clean dry light and it magically turns clear and incredible looking. So satisfying.
I wasn't expecting the final results to be as good as the manufacturers video but I was pleasantly surprised with the final results. I added a little bit of water to the cleaning compound and spent a good 7-10 minutes scrubbing each headlight (2012 Acura MDX has large headlights) and wanted to be sure I did a thorough job. Wiped it clean with some wet paper towels let dried it with a cloth and then gave it two healthy coats of spray. Lights look almost good as new. Brand new headlights were $800 for the pair so this was definitely money well spent. I'll repeat the process in 12 months if necessary, but can probably wait longer since the car gets waxed every few months. There seems to be enough to do three vehicles. TIP: tape a garbage bag on the front quarter panel and cut out the shape of the headlight before applying the spray as to not get it on the vehicle's paint.
This worked for me, but I combined items in two kits to get a good result. Neither were expensive. After reading way too many reviews, I decided to use a modified method. I'll describe this hybrid approach below. The headlight lenses on my 2008 Honda CR-V were not too bad, about half was moderately oxidized. I double masked the area so that I didn't damage the adjacent painted or plastic parts. First, 3/4 inch tape to get close, then 1-1/2 inch over it to protect it and give a bigger area for final masking (spraying).
Considering the low price I am positively impressed, works great too! Certified Happy Customer.
After reading the reviews here I went with this restoration kit, and it could not have gone better. Followed the instructions and did one light at a time, and the photos speak for themselves. This is a 2003 Honda Accord, and the lenses look as good as they did out of the showroom. Be sure to read and follow the instructions, and have faith. After two rounds with the cleaning polish things didn't look that much better, but the "haze" was even and not as yellow. When I wiped it down with the damp cloth, dried, and still....it didn't look right. BUT, as soon as you apply the second step - the clear coat? BOOM. Instant perfection. Dries, add a second coat, and you're done. I took my time, did each light twice with the cleaner before applying the clear coat, took about 40 minutes. Better yet, both cleaning pads rinsed out easily, and I have more than enough left to do this again (if needed), in a few years. We'll see how it looks - clear coat says good for one year.
My first headlight restoration and I’m very satisfied... The first thing I did, was the tape job (tape not included). Then I went to work applying the rubbing compound with the supplied pads (2) that came with the kit. In between applications (I used 2-3 application per light) I wiped off the haze from the rubbing compound. Wiping off the haze allows you to see how far you got and how much more is needed. After my last compounding and last cleaning of the haze, I used a damp soft cloth to make sure I got off all the haze from the compound and dried it with a dry cloth. I also let it air dry for a few minutes. Once I was sure it was dry, I gave the lights the first coat and waited 5 mins. Then I gave it the second coat. It dries in like 5 mins. And cures with in 24 hrs. I didn’t do both lights at the same time. I actually did one light at a time. It takes about an 1.5 hrs total. I didn’t even time my self. I was just taking my time. This kit was perfect for my head lights as mine didn’t have/ had the beginning of yellowing. In other words, was not in horrible condition. I definitely would recommend! I was lookin in the market to purchasing some new head lights but after the purchase of this restoration kit, I need to look no more!!!
So, I have a 17 year old Jetta. I bought the kit, and when it arrived was surprised to see there was a heavy duty/extreme option that I didn't see on Amazon. I worried this wouldn't work but figured for the price, I'll give it a shot and if I need to search out the other, so be it. Well, my lights were terrible. They're amazing now - so clear! And the process was easy. I am so glad I have a heated garage as I would have had to wait until May where we live because this worked great. The only issue that we encountered was it took longer to dry than stated - but since I don't need to buy another kit and my lights are nearly new looking, I can live with that. Besides, it just meant that it spent the night in the warm garage drying. Definitely a surprise and worth it!
