How to Make Headlights Look Like New


Fading lighting is a problem, and if you have a vehicle with yellowed or scratched plastic headlights, it can be a hazard. So how do you make headlights look like new? The answer is a polishing job using a few special tools.

Things You'll Need

  • Headlight restoration kit
  • Masking tape
  • Microfiber towels
  • Drill
  • Mask off the lens using the masking tape. You want to surround the lens, and protect the sheet metal so that it doesn't get damaged.

  • Attach the wool pad that comes with the kit onto the drill by placing it in the chuck and tightening.

  • Apply the polish that comes with the kit onto the wool pad, making sure to just put on a little bit at a time. Applying too much will get polish everywhere.

  • Place the wool pad onto the lens and turn on the drill. Work the polish around the lens.

  • Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the lens is clean and all of the scratches are gone.

  • Wipe off any excess polish using the microfiber towel. Then remove the masking tape from the vehicle.
