Default Restore Headlights Better Than A Professional

CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE?


I talked to the owner of this car and he told me that he took his car to a “professional” to get his headlights restored. They attempted to restore his headlights but obviously did less than a stellar job. The picture above shows the left side that I fixed myself and the right side is how the customer originally received his headlights back from a professional. Needless to say he was very upset that not only did his headlights look bad but that he had to pay for it also. This had to be fixed and I knew exactly how.
LOOKS TO ME LIKE SANDING MARKS


HERE'S WHAT I USED TO FIX THIS PROBLEM

This my friends happens to be a headlight restoration kit that you can buy off WolfgangCarCare.com. It’s called the Wolfgang Plastik Lens Cleaning System, a comprehensive plastic polishing and restoration kit for polycarbonate headlight lenses. Restore hazy, clouded, oxidized lens covers with professional results! The kit works with your electric drill to clean and polish the plastic to improve the headlights' function and appearance. The Wolfgang Plastik Lens Cleaning Kit is a fast, simple, and affordable alternative to replacing weathered headlight lenses!

There are 3 easy steps to this kit and anybody with a drill can do it.

Preparation: Clean loose debris and dirt from the lenses. Tape off the paint around the lenses using detailer tape. This tape is easier to remove than masking tape and has no adverse effects on the clear coat.

Step 1: Wolfgang Plastik Lens Cleaner
Pour a circle of Wolfgang Plastik Lens Cleaner onto an orange Low Profile Pad. The cut of this pad will help break down the abrasives in the polish as it removes the haze. Press the pad to the lens cover. If you are using a cordless drill, polish at the highest speed. Use the lowest speed on an electric drill. Go over the lens several times in different directions until the polish starts to dry. Use a microfiber towel to buff away the residue. If the lens is still cloudy, repeat this step.



Step 2: Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze
Switch the pad to a black pad. Pour a circle of Wolfgang Plastik Lens Glaze onto the pad. Press it to the lens cover and turn the machine on at the speeds listed above. Work in different directions until the glaze starts to dry. Buff off the residue with a microfiber towel.



Step 3: Wolfgang Plastik Surface Sealant
As a final step, use Wolfgang Plastik Surface Sealant to seal and protect your lenses. Apply with a microfiber applicator pad. Allow the sealant to haze over and buff the lens with a soft microfiber towel.



END RESULTS




The results came out great. I removed all the cloudiness/haziness and it only took me 15 minutes to do both of the headlights. This is definitely the best headlight restoration kit on the market. If you have any questions about this kit, I would be happy to answer them for you. Thanks

Looks great! I tried all that, but found the hazing is on the inside of mine. Are mine
at all salvageable? I have xenon if that makes a difference. I'd just replace them, but
$350ish ea is a lot!
