Details

Out of all of the various "Headlight Lens Restoration" or repair products on the market this has is one of the best. It does require using a handheld drill for best results but it is WELL worth it. By using the fast spinning motion of a drill and the supplied foam pads and various grits of sand paper you can first 'cut through' the dirt, sun damage, oxidization, grime, or yellowed and rough surface on the top 1/64" of a inch of the plastic on the lens. Next, a slightly higher grit (less rough) is used, followed by yet another and than a polish that fine tunes the plastic to be super smooth and clear. This may take 15 or so minutes but it is the only way to truly cut through the sandblast texture and faded yellow part of the lens. Only in VERY rare cases will the yellow or dark part of the lens affect the full thickness of the lens. In that case there is really nothing that can be done but it is very rare. Most lens's are able to be sanded down and polished as described with fantastic results. One kit can do 2 or more headlights depending on the amount of work needed.

Highlights:
- For use on headlights, taillights, fog, and directional lights
- Kit contains sanding discs and polishing pad with compound
- Saves 100s versus purchasing a new headlight
- Improves the appearance of a car - with "like new" headlights
- Restores cloudy and dull lenses
- Easy, 3-step process requires as little as an hour to remove scratches and restore cloudy, dull lenses
- Features 3M abrasive technology and a polishing compound to restore hazy and dull headlight lenses, as well as other plastic lens surfaces on your vehicle
- System is intended to restore two headlight lenses
- Utilizes the muscle power of a common household (1200-1600 rpm) drill to do all the necessary sanding and buffing

Customers' comments

Excellent fit. I bought the matte black to try and match the rest of the trim and it looks factory installed.

Removing the OE chrome grill "nuts" was a bit of a pain, so I elected to just snap the plastic threads off rather than attempt to remove them. I wouldn't plan on keeping the OE grill as the plastic threads and stamped nuts are practically destroyed no matter how gentle you are.

The upper grill snaps in and use the same fasteners as the OE. The new stamped nuts can be a bit annoying, just seat the nut on the ball of your thumb and turn. Once the nut cuts into the plastic use a nut-driver to snug up--don't over tighten.

The lower grill just snaps in. I cleaned and plasti coted the bumper black, as you can see the bumper color behind the new grill--my car is red so it really stood out.

This grill makes the car look so much better and more up to date. I really like it.

Both of the front headlight trims came with one having the letter "A" and one having the letter "B" but does not instruct on which one is left and right side. Both pieces are almost identical and fit nearly the same on either headlight trim. I feel that there should be some sort of instruction on which one goes on the left or right side.
