[Walmart] Meguiars Plast X Clear plastic cleaner/polish - 5$

Great for getting those headlights crystal clear! On clearance so YMMV but looking online it seems to be chainwide ( in store only? )

Toothpaste does the same thing. Plus it leaves the headlights smelling minty fresh!

PlastX is a polish, not a compound...Toothpaste is not the same thing. This is used for removing swirls from interior trim plastic or on soft boat windows for uv protection. Limited results for headlights, not abrasive enough...better off with one of the headlight kits if thats your intention

I assume this will remove the haze, but what to use to keep it from coming back?
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburders eat people

Headlight kits include a sealer in the package to prevent them from getting hazy again.

For headlights, wet sand 1000, wet sand 2000, apply plast X, apply protectant/sealant. Going to do our car right now :D .

Walmarts inventory system is garbage, shows OOS in store but there are at least 10 bottles at Sunrise in Kitchener.

This has to be my favorite headlight restorer. I've used a bunch of products over the years, usually when I cannot find this one on the shelves and I always revert back to plastX. IMO it's the best bang for the buck!

Can't beat 5$, I wouldn't recommend applying this by hand. Use a polisher/buffer for best results.

For minor discoloration headlights this will help, for a number of months. You will need to do it again, and again, every year!
Even with a buffer, spent a lot of time doing this.
In the end, wish i'd just purchased new headlights from rockauto.
Once the protective coating is gone from plastic headlights, they will discolor again after only a few months.

Have since purchased new non-oem headlights and they look good for years.
If the vehicle you own had 100k plus unit sales in North America, non-oem parts, including headlights, are usually not that expensive.
Paid less than $150 cdn, including taxes, shipping, and xchg, for two new headlights.
Use retail me not to save 5%. No additional fees on arrival. Save yourself a lot of work.

shows $11 for me in Manitoba.

I would buy this for black plastic exterior trim pieces on my truck and my gf's car. Not for headlights.

Edit, when I changes stores it shows $5 at my local walmart.

Most non OEM headlights, particularly ebay headlights are not DOT certified. Meaning you cannot safety a vehicle with them. Be careful of that.

I agree these pastes or liquid polishes won't last.
However no need to buy new headlights...In 2015 I purchased this kit via Amazon USA during a holiday:3M Headlight Lens Restoration System, (39008) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B001AIZ5HY/ref ... xxbH1GF4TK

It's worked wonders. One year later and the lights are still clear. The combination of compounds and multi stage sanding discs make the difference.
I used the kit on a 2006 sienna which has huge headlights and the supplied sanding disks and paste were just enough.

Good point. But i didn't suggest ebay!
CAPA approved parts are accepted by many insurance companies for repairs

Canada,Eh!
I'm looking for a plastic polish which is safe for clear polycarbonate.
Does anyone with experience know if either this or the Novus System would be appropriate?
Thx
