DIY Headlight Restoration

 

So the headlights on my wife’s car were starting to get a little oxidized. This is one of the things I hate about the new poly-carbonate (plastic) headlights.  Yes they are safer, but do require more maintenance.

What will you need for this project:

DRILL MASTER – 6 In. Compact Palm Polisher

Wondering how to clean foggy car headlights? DIY headlight restoration is much easier than it sounds.

NU FINISH – Nu Finish Car Polish

Any brand of toothpaste

Steps to remove oxidization from your headlights:

Step 1: Clean the headlight with soap and water.
Step 2: Mask off the surrounding area to protect your car from accidental scuffing.
Step 3: Using the terry cloth and the palm polisher, starting moving the polisher over the surface of your headlights with the toothpaste. You don’t need to add a lot of pressure.  Add water and toothpaste as needed, and expect to spend up to five to ten minutes cleaning each affected light. Be sure to keep everything wet!
Step 4: Using a clean terry cloth and the palm polisher, apply the Nu Finish car wax. Again, spend about five minutes going over each light.  Make sure to keep your wax wet by apply more of the Nu Finish.  Then let the wax dry.
Step 5: Using the fleece buffer and the palm unit, buff each lens to remove the dry way.  Again, you should spend about five minutes on each headlight.
For maintenance, you can apply the Nu Finish every couple of months with a cloth.  Let it dry and buff off with a clean towel.  Here are my before and after photos:

 Just as toothpaste can remove unwanted particles from the enamel on your teeth, it can remove stains from your headlights. This is because toothpaste – even gel and whitening varieties – contains a mild abrasive that buffs out the surface for a smooth feel and look that translates into clearer headlights. The Nu Finish just provides a synthetic wax seal to help prevent it from oxidizing faster.
