[Amazon.com] CT - Meguiar's Headlight and Clear Plastic Restoration Kit $17.49 March 9th-15th

Product Detail

Since this kit doesn't involve any sanding , it's good for light scratches/oxydation/yellowing .Basically it's a bottle of PlastX with a drill buffer head and a microfiber cloth .I've used this on a motorcycle windscreen with success.Does polish plastic headlights nicely removing light scratches .Mine were not really oxydated so cannot vouch but there's a few customer pictures at Amazon.com

You can also use the left over plastx to buff the scratches out of any plastics you might have. Everyone always recommends it for buffing scratches out of glossy laptop lids.

Its a good deal especially for very light scratches but I would rather use 1500 wet sand paper, a good swirl remover and a good wax. this way it removes the deeper scratches and the final results are very impressive. I charge my friends $50 a set and make sure they come back looking spotless and clear as hell.

Remember to add UV protection after doing this.

Most headlights come with a layer of UV protection and once you buff/sand it off your headlights will start yellowing a lot faster from the sun.


A good product would be 303 aerospace protectant.

I recommend that you scuff/wetsand your headlights before using this kit.

ps Meguiars has a new kit coming out this year with headlight UV protectant and sanding pads included.

Very true.

PlastX will make them look great for about six months. But don’t throw out the rest of the bottle when you’re done, because you’ll probably need to reapply it with a light buffing twice a year.

Why not Turtle Wax T240KT Headlight Lens Restoration Kit instead ? It comes with the sealing wipe helps protect from future yellowing and discoloration. Regular price is only $12 from canadian Tire.

[QUOTE]Kit includes: 3 restoration pads of various grits from 2400 to 8000 grit, Spray Lubricant (4 oz.), Lens Clarifying Compound (4 oz.) and Lens Sealing Wipe (4"x4")[/QUOTE]

The Meguiars kit is not so great, if you like Meguiars you can try the new one with the sealant inside but its abit more expensive.
You can use Ultimate compound and it work fine too with some light wet sanding.
Theres a kit by Sylvania at Walmart for $30 that will last, it is rated the most effective by comsumer reports.

Another option is the Helmspar and mineral spirits solution that apparently last pretty much indefinitely... google it =D

Save your money and use a quarter tube of toothpaste.

It worked really well for me going on 2 years.

Yes, it takes some rubbing in but it works.
