Car headlights may fade, oxidize, fog, yellow or simply become less clear as a result of exposure, sunlight, rain, road debris and chemicals. All of these not only makes your car look less attractive, but it can also create a dangerous situation when driving at night. It is due to the brightness of your highlights become less. Some people waste money unnecessarily by purchasing entirely new headlights when this happens, but you can easily and inexpensively restore your own car headlights. Your lights will look like new and you will save your money.
Restoring headlights to like new condition requires removal of the thin outer layer of headlight material to expose the clear material underneath. Because such a small layer is removed, headlight strength and usability are not compromised.
Today we will show you on how to restore your headlights to a near like new condition with very simple items, and simple to follow steps.Here is the answer!!
1.Wash and dry your headlights to remove any road film or dirt.
2.Wet 600 grit sandpaper and sand the headlights in a circular motion. Continue wetting the sandpaper to ensure the paper does not get clogged with sanding material from the headlight. Continue sanding the headlights until the faded outer layer is removed.
3.Wash and dry your headlights. Wet-sand the headlights with 1,000 grit sandpaper to remove any sanding marks from the 600 grit paper. Use water to keep the sandpaper from clogging.
4.Rinse off then dry the headlights. Use 1,500 grit sandpaper (Some people suggest to use 3,000 grit sandpaper) and polish them in a circular motion. This finely grained sandpaper will remove any scratches and restore the surface to a polished appearance. As with previous wet sanding efforts, keep the sandpaper rinsed and wet to ensure no clogging occurs. Wash and dry the headlights.
5.Use a plastic polish (Meguiar’s, 3M, Soft99 or another brand) to buff your car headlights to a high gloss. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe off the plastic polish in the same way you would wipe wax off car paint. The polish will add protection to the plastic, increasing UV resistance and protection from the elements.
