Headlight Restorer/Defogger

First let me say that this product should be called Headlight RENEW. This product was amazing. It cost me $20 from the Advance up the road but I have seen it elsewhere. Enough rambling onto the pics.

The product gets an A+++ from me. It cost 20 bucks but I would gladly pay $50 or more if I had to do it again. I am still in amazement at the outcome. It is basically a three part process. 1. Wet Sanding: The supply 2 pieces of sand paper for each light a piece of 1000 grit and a finer piece. 2. Polishing Compound: they supply a packet of polishing compound for each light. 3. Acrylic Finish: There are 2 packets of some Acrylic/SuperGlue or something.

The whole process took about 45 mins even though the package says only takes 5 mins. My lights were bad and the pictures don't do justice as to the before or after shots. It was impressive if you have yellow lights get this stuff you will not be disappointed.

Hey man, First off I will agree this stuff works amazing I have done this to my father in laws truck before I bought the tools and started doing it as a add-on sale at work.

There is also good money in it.

Looks good.

There is a significant difference in the look between the polished stage and the finished product. I would have been satisfied with the polished stage but it was the final finish that wowed me.

The finish is guaranteed for the life of the vehicle also. I don't really care for that though for 20 bucks and the time it took I would be satisfied if it only lasted 2 years.

I went for a drive in the dark to test it out. I have never noticed a difference between the high and low beams before with this car. One other improvement is before when driving in town you couldn't tell whether the lights were on or not because the street lights we brighter than the headlights. Now it is like I have HIDs or something.

It was a serious saftey issue before and I am glad to have fixed it. I recommend anyone with yellowed lights to do the same.

We sell something like that at work, and I was amazed at how well it works with alittle bit of elbow grease. I would also recommend it to everyone.

It will also help the re-sell value.
